[edit] Rename

Should this be renamed "Real life foods"? Wolf O'Donnel 06:22, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

You raise a good point. All of these foods definitely appear to be of the dead variety. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 06:23, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
I remember making this page back when anonymous users could make pages back in the day. (No, I can't prove it, just take my word for it). Back then I thought "real-live" was a mistake made in haste and would have chosen the title "live-action foods" if I could do it over again. This is also why most of the pages that link to this one use the phrase "live-action". -- 13:31, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
(aside) I remember those days. Those were good days. Good days. - 14:00, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

The one problem I have with "live-action foods" is that there's not very much action going on with these. I would support something like "photorealistic foods" or "photographs of food" or something. "Non-Cartoon Foods in Decidedly Cartoon Settings". Something indicative of "these are photos used in cartoons". --DorianGray 20:32, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
"Food Photos"? — Defender1031Talk  21:05, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict'd) I'd support "Real Life Foods" or "Photographs of Food". "Photorealistic" carries the implication that the image isn't actually a photograph but an imitation of one. DEI DAT VSAdatvsa center\super contra 21:09, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
"Food Photos" would work too. DEI DAT VSAdatvsa center\super contra 21:09, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
"Food Photos" is pretty good, although it doesn’t quite capture that they’re real world photos (as opposed to a character taking a photo of food, in-universe. - 22:14, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
I suggested "live-action" not because it contains action, but because it implies that it is the opposite of being a cartoon. You know, food that isn't a drawing, but actual food. Or at least an actual model of food, if we're talking about the phony stuff used in food advertisements. -- 22:30, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
I support Live Action Foods. The term "live action" usually implies action, but I still think this sounds best. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:02, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
I agree. "Live action" works in my mind as the inverse of "cartoon". Lira (talk) 00:53, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
