How to Take the Best #foodporn Shot
1. Have enough natural light
Lighting is probably the most important thing to consider when trying to get the perfect #foodporn shot. Natural light is key. Direct sunlight is usually too harsh, so ask for a table near the window or wait for a cloudy day to get the ideal lighting for your picture.
2. Make it drip
People respond best to images that seem like they are moving. Try to capture some sort of movement in your shot, like a runny yolk, gooey cheese stretch or dripping chocolate.
3. Get up close and personal
While it is important to play around with different camera angles, you can never go wrong with a close-up shot of the food. The goal of #foodporn is to highlight the natural beauty of what is on your plate, so do not be afraid to get your camera really close. Also, do not get too fancy with filters when editing the picture. It is okay to tweak the color balance and exposure, but do not do anything too drastic. When in doubt, #nofilter.
