A preview of what the arranged food looks on the photographer's computer


Have you ever seen one of those ads with a perfect hamburger from your favorite fast food restaurant? Condiments squeezed on in beautiful symmetrical zig zags, sesame seeds equal distance apart, and a big, gleaming, all-beef patty.

Surely no real-life food could ever begin to live up to that picture. So blame food stylists for making that junk food look so delicious. People like Sienna Degovia, whose work has appeared in numerous places, including TV shows, magazines and a slew of advertising.

She let us follow her around her studio as she prepared for a shoot and she described her job as she prepares the food on a TV or movie set.
