Food photography question

5 years 11 months ago #426838 by Colorado Mike
Hey guys, 

What is the stuff food photographers spray on food to make it look moist?  I'm working on my food shots and my shots just don't look as moist as what the pro's are doing.  

Thank you

Why not use a bottle of water with a fine sprayer on it?

Water will evaporate too quickly

Rule #1: food photography can involve a lot of non-food materials and techniques. Including a blowtorch. :woohoo:

Try glycerine from the chemist, mixed with water but you need to experiment
