Reader Mark color corrects my nasty iPhone picture

Better looking, not better tasting, One Midtown Kitchen calamari

Better looking, not better tasting, One Midtown Kitchen calamari

I’ve got the best readers. Thanks, Mark!

The issue of food writers sharing lousy pictures has been in the news lately. Recently there’s been a tempest in a T-Mobile account brewing over Martha Stewart’s habit of uploading questionable food art shots to her Twitter account.

Recently, Buzzfeed took the doyenne of domesticity to task for posting a picture of this wedge salad. It is so ugly that walkers would take one look at and grunt, “No eat! Bad brains! Make sick!”

Are you guilty of Bad Food Porn? If so, please post a picture to Twitter with the hashtag #badfoodporn and let us know about it in the comments below. We’re thinking of building a gallery. I’ve got plenty of nauseating shots to share.

Thats a salad? Don’t believe Mark could help that photo! Think I will head off to Whataburger.

Sorry, but the “color correction” made it look even worse. Looks like deep fried slugs.

I think it’s very funny that Martha Stewart would post that picture and not think that it looks terrible .It just goes to show that she’s got a lot of handlers behind the scenes giving the Martha Stewart brand it’s “tasteful” image. I also agree with Bob. Mark did a nice job retouching the picture itself but unfortunately the food has to stand on its own and it doesn’t. It’s like putting lipstick on a pig.

Think I’ll go with the thousand words rather than the single picture on this one.
