I'm alway hungry. I've been cursed with the combination of a high metabolism & a small stomach. So my answer is "Yes, I'm always hungry." You don't need to show me pictures of food for me to get hungry.
In Spanish: "Tengo hambre!"; in Japanese: "Harahetta!" (btw I'm NOT multy lingual, I just happen to know a few words in verious languages)
Food photography is mostly to show you the detail in which the food was made, the perfectness it sometimes displays or the fact it can look so greasy and yet somehow good that it makes you want one. In my opinion, it's really just to look pretty and not ugly.
Hmm. They do look very pretty, on second thought they do kinda make us jealous on how perfectly they make those sweet-tooth treats and how... Un-perfect our results are when we cook, i wonder how they do it, not sure if it's edited in photoshop or just a natural chef
