Walk into any food establishment, whether it be a supermarket, cafe, or fancy restaurant, and you’re guaranteed to find someone snapping away with their smartphone, hovering over their food with their phone, hoping to capture the deliciousness in the most appealing way possible.
According to a study by the University of Minnesota and the Harvard Business School, taking a picture of your food before you eat can make your food taste better. In fact, they say that diners who engage in some form of ritualistic behavior before eating enjoy their meal more, as opposed to those who do not.
**FYI: Here’s a food photographer’s tip: natural lighting is the best environment to take beautiful food photographs, as it makes the food appear three-dimensional and flawless.
