When I first started posting regularly on this blog, an editor assured me that I would not need to haul a big camera around. A semi-decent cellphone pic would be just fine.
Now, nearly a year later, I end up taking pictures of my food even when I don’t intend to post them on the blog. It’s become almost second nature to reach for my iPhone the second food hits the table in a restaurant.
I can never resist taking pictures at Dynamic Dish, where the food is as photogenic as it is delicious. The restaurant is also ideally lit during the daytime, and the unvarnished wooden tables provide just the right background. I also think that chef/owner David Sweeney has a very keen understanding of how people eat with their eyes.
I’m curious if anyone else has gotten into the habit of taking pictures of restaurant food as a matter of course. I’m noticing this more and more when I go out; I don’t imagine all these photo takers are food bloggers.
