HW#3 Color, Food Photography and Instagram

Something that was once so annoying to me, “people taking pictures of  everything they eat”, I must admit I’m one of those persons since I’ve noticed that it gets more likes than anything else I post.  I love watching colored pictures of food online,  because visually its very easy to recognize exactly what is on the plate, which makes me know that I could recreate it. The professional photos on Instagram however, are visually beautiful but not necessarily appetizing to the taste. I recently watched a program on ” how to get the most likes on food photography”, the photographer made it clear that the foods which photographed the best were almost inedible,but deceivingly they look very appetizing.

    Good point about how the best looking food photographs are usually inedible because photographers use many tricks, including applied color or shellac, to make the colors look more saturated.
