New grill? - think stock photography.

Or at least that's what I did!  I was breaking in a new grill and couldn't resist the urge to grab my camera while cooking up a few sausages for dinner.  Here's how I transformed the original photography to a level that made it look like good food stock photography...

Here's the original shot.  I liked the perspective and composition, but the color of the sausages were dull due to a cloudy day.

I brought the file into Lightroom to adjust the color and lessen the intensity of the light reflecting on the grill.

In Photoshop, I enhanced the grill marks to give the meat a more cooked look.  I also took advantage of light reflecting on the bottom near the flame by color correcting the reflections to look like additional flames.

Now we're cooking!
