How can we make this salad look more…exciting? You know, it’s just an ordinary bowl of salad. My wife makes that all the time. I’m pretty fed up with it.
We could light it differently I suppose. Or shoot it from a different angle.
We could place it on this highly reflective shiny table and bury a flashlight in it.
Now you’re talking.
That’s splendid. It looks like a giant spaceship.
Salad’s so much better when it looks scary. Would you eat that?
Me neither. Well, we’re out of film. Give us a toke on that thing.
There’s not much left.
Great. Just great.
