Better Food Photography (If You Must!)

Everybody's a food photographer these days, or so it seems. The epidemic—er, I mean the trend—is spreading like a plague—er, I mean like wildfire. Can you tell from my snarky tone that I'm fairly tired of seeing my Facebook feed full of iPhone snaps of tacos and tarts and tapenades? Enough with the snap-shoddy food photography! (I even read a NYT article recently about how some restaurants are overrun with food photographers and have begun banning the practice!) Maybe I'd feel differently if everybody knew a little more about making good food photographs. And maybe they'd know a little more if they read Natalie Johnson's 5 simple tips for stronger food photographs via the DPS blog. If you insist on snapping all of your meals, it's a must-read.
