The fast-food chain Burger King has come under fire for producing misleading photos of its burgers and in particular the Whopper. Four burger-loving foodies have brought a class-action lawsuit against the company for misrepresenting the burgers they sell in hope of squeezing some cash out of the company. 

For years, we were led to believe that racing oil was used in place of maple syrup and PVA glue was used to replace milk in shots of cereal. Until recently, I was very much under the impression that all food photography was fake and the food pictured inedible but apparently, that is no longer the case. While the best cameras for food photography and the best lenses for food photography will help you to create great images, even the most experienced photographers often rely on a little helping hand to create images that look irresistible.
