A hotel chef asked me to photograph some plates of food. I had a rostrum set-up for photographing the plate of food from above against a white background with no cutlery/crockery - as requested by the chef. Then I sent the prints off to the client.

Two days later, I get the head chef screaming on the phone at me.

Client: These photographs are rubbish!

Me: What’s wrong with them?

Client: You have photographed all the dishes upside down!

Me: Rotate the print by 180 degrees and they will be the right way up.

There was quite the silence before he hung up.
