Restaurant look

I look at all these pics of food that look like something a chef cooked at a 5* restaurant and I was wondering if anyone has ever seen any other type of grill that makes food look as beautiful as the BGE? I have been egging less than a year and I really surprise people when I pull steaks off that have both vertical and horizontal grill marks and they think I am a culinary genius! I haven't quiet gotten down the picture posting thing yet, but I would love to see some of everybody's "prettiest" cooks. I just looked at Lawn Ranger's pork chops and I am wanting a thick pork chop for lunch!!!

    The egg makes us all better at cooking and our pictures look better.

    i think taking pics of every dinner cooked helps, both in what you put in your plate and how you put it in there. i need better plates because im far from 5 star cooking :laugh: now you do need to take lots of pics to get a good one and some foods are just about impossible to get to look great. heres some favorites anyways

    this was a salmon stuffed with raisin craisin apple stuffing

    said leftovers made into a pie

    100_0956.jpg

    a 45 day dry aged porterhouse with egged portuguese
    rotten cake

    100_1063.jpg

    probably took 20,000 pics and moved 1500 or so to pbucket for posting and have a dozen shots that i like but the food just seems to get better and better and i think pic taking plays a part in that

    My pics look like food I cooked. Good, but............

    Your pics look like food served in a 5-star restaurant. Especially the first one!! I'm jealous is all.

    Maybe if Nature Boy popps in here he can show you an old picture of a steak he took. It is absolutely perfect.

    wish i was smart enough to have them in some order, sometimes it takes a while to find a pic scanning thru 1500 or so :laugh:

  • Don't I hear you? Sometimes someone will ask about a particular cook and I'll go "oh yeah, I did that a while back" Three quarters of the time I can't find it. I got the pay version of photobucket earlier this year cause the free one was full. I said to myself "Albums you idiot" ...guess what? :unsure:

    My boy...you are superb!!!!!!

  • I always forget to set the resolution lower so mine get filled up pretty quick. Plus I take five pics where one would do anyway. I should probably just go through and delete a bunch of stuff but you never know when you are going to need an under exposed, poorly focused pic of a burger. :laugh:

    For the best looking food (IMHO) go to www.rickstropicaldelight.com He no longer posts here, unfortunately, but is a highly regarded BGE cook and photographer. Keep cooking and taking photos B)

  • This is my favorite photo. You should note that some of it has to do with the effort put into setting up and taking the photo.
