There are many differences from food photography for marketing and food photography for art. Food photography for marketing is more focused on the food and has mostly everything else blurred out this way the food stands out and is what your eye is drawn to. With food marketing it makes the food seem very appetizing and the colors seem to be more powerful this way. With photography for art seems to be more bland. The food in these photos seem to be nothing special and is just used as a prop. They are not focused on the food product for the most part. When food is photographed for art they are trying to send a message other then the food in the photo. I do not have a preference, both are beautiful art works and everyone can enjoy.
