Picture perfect: Nathan Myhrvold's eye-popping pictures of food

Monday 11:45 GMT

When Myhrvold wanted to photograph two liquids mixing in midair, there was only one solution: Robots, to give Myhrvold the repetition capability and the precision to get the shots he wants.

The food photography is a spinoff of an earlier project: his 2011 magnum opus, a 50-pound, $625 encyclopedic cookbook called "Modernist Cuisine." That zig-zagging career path brought Myhrvold to his latest passion: taking eye-popping portraits of food.
