As I look through contest entries, I'm struck by the almost unfair contrast between entries that benefit from a flattering photograph of the dish and those that...ahem, don't. I realize food photography is an art, but are there any tips for beginners who just want their food to not look horrible in photographs? I'm guessing many people who enter the contests would appreciate this advice!
