Nowadays, posting photos of foods on social media became the new trend. We tend to spend a lot of time editing our photos to make sure it is appealing and appetizing to the viewers. On most of the special occasion, I share food photos on social media with my friends and family. My family and I don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving because we believe there shouldn’t be a specific day to be thankful. We often get together on the most weekend and have a potluck. We also had a get-together party on Thanksgiving weekend. There was a lot of food and before we started to eat, first, we all took photos of the foods on the table.Color is a very important aspect of every photo, especially in food photography. When we are taking photos of our food, we always make sure we get the perfect lighting and later on we add more colors and fix the brightness, saturation and etc. Color makes the photo more live and appealing. It also helps us see details in the photos clearly.
William Eggleston is known for inventing color photography. He was the first one to produce a color photo. During that time many photographers didn’t like the idea of color photography and critiqued Eggleston works. But his photos “offered a powerful argument for the use of color photography in art, paving the way for the generations of color photographers that followed.”(Cain, paragraph 2). In today’s world, Eggleston’s work has been constantly used on the biggest network site which is social media.
