Found Objects: Food

I am always strongly drawn to photographing my food. People in restaurants must think I am crazy when they look over and see me  with my camera pointed into my plate. At least Simon and Jeramy are used to my photography antics at home.

I have noticed so many other bloggers take pictures of their food as well. A snapshot of what you eat can really tell a story about part of a day. A morning cup of tea or coffee can portray a sense of calm or invigoration, while a glass of wine and a bowl of pasta might conjure an image of shared conversation over an intimate dinner. This article notes: “…the main reasons we photograph food are to document our lives, to celebrate the completion of a dish and because we see food as art.” As an artist myself, I would agree that for me, food is art, even if I didn’t make it myself.

Do you photograph your food? What does your foodography say about you?

  1. I take pictures of some dishes… happy turnouts for baking, delicious looking dinners and drinks and desserts. I don’t do it too often for just an every day meal, but something a bit “special,” yeah, I’ll take a picture 🙂
