Sickening decomposition of a kebab


Have you ever wondered how a kebab decompose in 20 days? You could definitely be surprised .. find out by watching today’s video.

Here’s another video in the series “Decomposition of food” signed by our friend Danilo.

20 days, 2880 photos, and guest star : two beautiful kebab with salad and pieces of veal.

Some technical details on its implementation as we recover from the post that Danilo has left on the TLN Forum:

This time I left it all to decompose for 20 days by taking a picture every 7 – 10 – 14 minutes depending on what was going on. Let’s say that the first two days the kebab gave off a smell really delicious that I would have eaten them both .. but I resisted … and then after .. Well bacteria have begun to make sure that everything is giving off a stench of rotten corpse .. flies appeared and just 5 days after the first larvae .. strangely since the larvae have begun to eat meat the smell was almost completely gone ..
I put everything in manual including white balance and , as a suggestion I had here on TLN, I unscrewed the lens slightly to lock the iris. Of course cold light 140watt left on continuously.

Enjoy the video, and take a kebab for lunch:
