Martha Stewart’s Food Photography is Not a Good Thing [PHOTOS]

Martha Stewart may be a domestic goddess with remarkable skills in the kitchen, but her photography skills are proving to be less than stellar. She’s taken to Twitter recently to post pics of what she’s been cooking, though the reviews of those photos have been scathing.

The recipes themselves were probably very tasty. Creating dishes such as white truffle pasta, slow-cooked onion soup with baguette croutons, and iceberg lettuce with homemade Russian dressing takes talent. Yet snapping a photo of that food with a camera isn’t the same as a food photographer painstakingly lighting and positioning a dish, so when we post pictures of our food online they may not look all that appetizing.

Stewart’s followers have stated mixed reactions, with one even stating a dish looked like “prison food.” Others have been a bit nicer, saying that the dish probably tastes good, it just doesn’t look good.

My opinion: While I value Martha Stewart’s input on culinary and decorating issues, I won’t be seeking her out for a photography seminar. The food probably looked amazing in person, but what she’s posted looks more like a science experiment that’s been growing in my refrigerator for a few weeks.

Take a look for yourself and weigh in. Should Martha Stewart be posting photos of her food to Twitter?
