HW #1

What do I think about food photography? Well, I believe it’s a new defined work of art. It is a new way of rediscovering who you are and where you come from. From experience, I watch my fiancĂ© takes photos of every home cooked dish he makes. He’ll use the I-Phone camera, display the food in a nice manner so it stands out, and then snapshot it and post it to either Instagram or Facebook. With technology today, it’s amazing how far you can go with just a snapshot of a food dish. Even when you go for job interviews, sometimes they want to see a photo of your cooking, not to actually taste it, but to see how you display it. Overall, I believe the display and presentation is what really creates the art of food.

Photography is one top of technology that have been for a while in any aspect but more in “FOOD”. Now in this day, We see a lot of people in restaurant or anyplace that we see food taking picture with their phone or camera of their food for 2 reason: One just because they want take it and post. Others because they see something special or something that they catch their eyes want to see others what they see. For me, taking picture is fine because I not one of those people that take picture of every meals they eat. Sometime, when I order something and the plate surprise me I will posts because what I see have a inspiration and probably will also see something that I like in the picture. it’s hard sometime people like or put a comment on the post you put of your food because sometime people don’t like the picture just because the posture of the picture make the food look ugly or they don’t see attraction of the food. Also, now in this day has became very common taking picture of food because today world people are more interest in food, look and texture.

What’s a better way to engage in conversation but to share what you’re about to eat. It’s that one thing that everyone knows, food. In the digital age that we live in, sometimes, pictures and videos can say so much more, opposed to just talking. Sharing a picture of the brunch you had with a group of friends puts a timestamp on that moment, leaving you to remember that day and all of its glory or even faults. I love seeing what my friends post especially when it’s of a meal from a random place I’ve never been to. Most of my adventures revolve around a new restaurant that someone posted a picture of on some sort of social media and I know I’m not the only person that runs their lives around good people and food. Photography of food pushes chefs and those involved in any meal to make sure that it will look as good as it will taste. And that’s an innovation that I keep enjoying.


I would like to share my brunch from earlier today. Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon on an english muffin along side home fries and a sliced tomato at The Astor Room in Kauffman Studios Astoria.

Technology is on the rise with improvements. From Niepce’s first photograph and only being able to take pictures in one place to having portal cameras to capture things in the moment, photography is one of the many things changing. Technology is becoming so advanced you can upload a picture of your dinner within seconds online. Food photography is definitely one thing that almost everyone has done whether it’s on a cell phone or an actual camera. There’s something about capturing your food, your plate in the moment before you enjoy it. As mentioned in the article, Twitter is a big site that a lot of pictures get shared on. Instagram is another one. Instagram is a picture based site. As they say a picture holds a thousand words. These days people take pictures of a meal and also mention where you can buy it from. This convenience adds promotion for businesses, shows off the beauty of the food and continues to show different styles of food photography. Before I only took pictures of things I cooked but now that I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone with trying new foods, I try to capture photos any chase I get.

Firstly, I would like to mention that food is life. Food is a language used to unite  different cultures and for recreational purposes. Most people choose  to enjoy the company of friends and family or celebrate special occasions by dining out, so what better way to share your experiences than a photographic memory . I think taking pictures of food creates an illusion that one is having or has a spectacular life. Also it gives the audience of people looking at your photos an intimate feel of who you are. Taking pictures of foods and events are usually done so that one can look back and appreciate good times and also to cherish fulfilling moments. Photographs of food is also a great way to advertise the skill and creativity of the person that prepared and cooked it. Nowadays, people seem to be intrigued by the idea of trying new food trends and exotic foods, so snapping a picture to share will always be helpful to the viewers .

Felecia Stuart: The Food Photographing Generation.

It’s no secret that photography has taken over this generation. With the ongoing development of technology, and the growing dependancies on smartphones, you almost always have a camera available when needed. That being said, cell phones are being used less for direct contact and more for communicating via social media. Things like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and especially Instagram are changing the way we express ourselves to the world. Instagram specifically targets photography. You take a photo and upload it within seconds and almost immediately after, you get a notification of someone liking it. Like the “Iphone 5” video showed, it gives you this false sense of fulfillment. I myself am guilty of posting photos on Instagram and waiting for the likes to add up. And though I have never posted pictures of food, I do follow several food blogs. I follow blogs that post recipes and blogs that give recommendations to different restaurants around NYC, you can kind of say its purely educational. I think the only time I personally take photos of my food, its food that I make and pictures of the steps to get to it. Maybe its because i’m not that great a photographer, or maybe its because I don’t really get the point, but I don’t see myself posting a picture of my dinner anytime soon. IMG_7445

Homework 1: Why Food Photography

Taking pictures of food has become a big part of the photography field. Nowadays, people take pictures of their meals to express creativity and showcase their personal vision of the subject. Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin’s statement “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are” clearly reflects that different people from different cultures see and eat food differently. Food photography is significant in sharing and introducing people to new venues and cuisines. It reveals to what, when and how we eat. By photographing food with our cameras we represent our traditions and customs to other countries around the globe. It is also a great way to introduce your family and friends to places around. In fact, we all go online to check out all different places before we go out to eat. We like to see the restaurant’s dishes, interior and decor through other people’s photos first. Food photography also plays a huge role in advertising for the restaurants. It is all about the first impression that a customer gets and having good pictures can make a big difference for IMG_7381the business. The phrase, “People eat with their eyes”, is very relevant. Most people like to see the photograph of the dish before they order so they know exactly what they are getting, and for those from different culture who are not familiar with the cuisine it is even more important. I take pictures of food myself. I personally enjoy the art of food photography because I truly believe that it is a powerful language that speaks to people’s taste receptors and emotions.  It allows me to tell my story and show others my own view on food culture.IMG_9091IMG_8268

Homework #1: Photographing Food

Taking pictures of food has become very normal in the past couple of years. Technology is changing rapidly and phone cameras are becoming better by the years. Watching the commercial of the “iPhone 5” by comedian Adam Sacks produced a spoof commercial and it emphasizes on how good the camera on the iPhone has become.  Even scrolling down you Facebook/Instagram news feed you will see at least 4 to 5 pictures of food that your friends have ordered or they made at home. Photography of food is a great way to express your creations in the kitchen. This is becoming more popular throughout all cultures. Having all different cultures post pictures of what they are eating teaches the viewer more and more about that particular culture. For example one of my friends always posts pictures of what he is eating and what restaurant the dish was made at. This widely exposes the different restaurant and foods we are surrounded by. Taking photos of food is a great way to spread the knowledge to others and helps restaurant’s gain exposure. Even with the iPhone camera you don’t get the full experience of eating that food, but still get to enjoy a piece of your friend’s food. Keep the pictures coming!


Food Photography

My opinion on taking pictures of food is a great way to show off a new creative art. Art is a great way to show people’s emotions. Bringing food into this aspect of art will show case how artistic a chef can be.  Day in and day out you see more chefs or cooks focus on the presentation of their meal. You seem to see a lot more cleverness into plates deign. Food Photography is being seen all over the globe throughout social media. Food art has become a standard throughout the culinary industry. Your food must be appealing as well as tasteful or it will not catch the attention as it once would. Creativity has become one of the main ingredients of the pate as now a chef most now how to present his dish before making it
