In my opinion food photography has become the new thing. Other than taking selfies most people, including myself take pictures of food. French philosopher and gourmand Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin stated in the NY Times article First Camera, Then Fork”, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are. “I agree with his statement. What a person eats can describe them. Are you into more flavors , showing you like exciting and new things to try, or are you someone who sticks more to the plain dishes, showing you are not always ready for a change. Food photography is not only becoming a common practice for patrons, but for chefs to. Food Photography is a way to show and promote one’s dishes. Carl Rosenberg stated in the article “You have more connection with your food, so it forms a more essential memory of an occasion.” I agree with this comment. The food you photograph is becoming a memory to you. It is telling you how good something may have been , if you enjoyed your time , will you ever recommend it , or will that be a memory of don’t ever go their again. Food photography has become a new obsession, and I wouldn’t be shocked to see more people following on with this trend.
