I really like this video from Mc Donnalds where they come clean about there food photography.
Behind the scenes at a McDonald’s photo shoot:
I must admit that even though the food is obviously altered and fake. It does look more attractive then the “real” and bad photographs you usually see in cheap Turkish restaurants.
Have a look at this Getty Images ad i found on YouTube. It tells a story about love in 60 seconds by showing 870 photo’s in a fast sequence.
