This is a Greek yogurt served alongside granola and a combination of blueberries and raspberries. The texture of the yogurt is very thick and viscous similar to the texture of whipped cream. The granola provides a rough texture due to the dryness of the oats and is also rough due to the clumping of multiple pieces. The raspberries on the plate are firm on the outside and squishy the harder you pinch the berry. There are also little bits of furry bristles on the outside skin of the berry that feels like a gentle brush like feel to the berry. The blueberries are similar to the texture of the raspberries, but without the feel of the bristles on the outside. Instead there is just a smooth firm outer layer protecting squishy insides of the berry. Together the parfait creates a mixture of mouth feel textures mixing of textures where biting into granola helps create a crunch while everything else provides a smoother melt in your mouth type feel.

There are few foods as sensual and appealing as bacon. The mere smell of it can take you by the nose and lead you across the house to the kitchen. It vaults anything from eggs to chocolate to Brussels sprouts to new levels of deliciousness.Bacon is from the pig belly, which is part of the loin. Fresh pig belly can be cooked in a variety of ways.When most people talk about bacon, they tend to talk more about its texture than its flavor. The usual adjectives used to describe bacon are crispy and chewy, salty and savory. Smoky is often mentioned, but rarely is bacon described as sweet.From the very first bite, texture and chewing play crucial roles in how much we enjoy food.The taste of bacon breaking down into their delicious combination of sweet, nutty, grassy and buttery flavors, but we also love the textural interplay known as mouthfeel.In short, it’s all about mouthfeel the natural synthesis that happens when we simultaneously taste, chew and experience a food’s texture. It’s that melt in your mouth ecstasy we experience when eating the perfect bite.

For this week’s homework, I ask you to think about the idea of texture in food, and how does one capture texture in a photograph. The key to communicating texture in photography is to pay careful attention to detail. For the homework, you get to practice taking a photograph and uploading it to Instagram. For example, look at the photograph by contemporary photographer Olivier Richon and note how it gives you a sense of the texture of an egg, an object that we’ll be thinking about a lot this semester. Take a food-related photo (something you made or saw), and upload your photo to Instagram with a short 150-character caption describing the texture of your food item.

If you do NOT want to use Instagram, please post your photo here on the OpenLab and write a 100-word description.

#Panning Preparing the dough to go into the oven
Our bread baking in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. #Beautiful

Photography, a form of art at the start, which did not take long before developing to a great business idea throughout the world. coming from a third world country my only idea of photography was old cameras where we would have to take a film to a shop in the city so they can develop the pictures and give it back to us weeks later since they had to develop all the films given to them and the process was a bit time consuming.
Photography became more available with digital cameras, then on phones but we could not really do much until social media came along. we only took pictures to scroll up and down for memories but with social media, we get to share our experiences, influence the experiences of others and inspire with the pictures we take. social media has definitely had a great impact on my life and the pictures i see on Instagram for example, have made me visit places and eat at restaurants I probably would not have known about if it was not for the combination of photography and social media.
Social media has a huge presence on the food industry. Instagram definitely being the number one source of promotion for food industry businesses. In this day and age, social media has been seen as the fastest way to promote and increase sales for business. Creating Instagram pages has attracted Instagram followers to these businesses when they see pictures posted that they enjoy. There are also Instagram foodies, Instagrammers that love and enjoy food and create blogs to share with others about their experiences at food businesses, posting pictures of the foods they’ve encountered. These bloggers usually have thousands of followers and help tremendously in getting the word out about new places. One Instagram page that I follow that I absolutely love is @takeyourgirloutnyc. This Instagram page showcases different romantic restaurants in the New York City area. I always refer to this page when deciding what new restaurant to try based on the pictures posted.
I also do a lot of food postings as well, especially because I own a cake business on Instagram called @cakedbymandy. I post 2-3 pictures of the cakes I create a week so that my followers know the potential of my work and what to expect when ordering from my business. I also often promote myself by asking Instagram food bloggers or popular Instagram accounts with over ten thousand followers to follow my page and support so that they could spread the word for my business.As read in the article about New Fork City, “Building a business entirely on social media isn’t easy. It takes a lot of time and hard work to build a following and influence. But it is possible to build a business entirely around posting your favorite food photos to Instagram”. When starting a business, especially food industry related, social media is STRONGLY advised.
