How not to style food

This month in Professional Photographer magazine, we published a feature on food photography from Stan Sholik, giving you a look at some of the tricks of the trade. As a companion to that piece, we therefore give you a link to an excellent example of how not to style and photograph "food" (some descriptions contain strong language).

If you loved this gallery of alleged diet food horrors, perhaps you would enjoy Wendy McClure's new book, The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan: Classic Diet Recipe Cards from the 1970s.

Or perhaps you know someone who wants to lose their appetite, and you can recommend the book to them.
