Say Cheese: An Ode to Food Photography

I never realized that I always took photos of my food until the people I would dine with would comment on it. One time, at a conference, someone asked me if I was a food blogger (little did I know that The Collective Plate would be coming in my near future!). This question has come up often to me, “Why take pictures of your food?” If you are an avid Collective Plate reader, I’m sure you are guilty of taking photos of your food yourself.

I take photos of my food because it’s a part of our every day lives. It’s part of our story – from what we ateΒ on our trips to the flavor of cake you chose for your wedding to where you ate on your first date. We often base our lives around food and celebrate our birthdays, have proposals, engagements, reunions and many more in restaurants. Barbeques, Thanksgiving, Easter brunch, Christmas dinner, Valentine’s Day chocolate, Girl Scout cookie season, Halloween candy = food, food, food.

So I thought for this post, I’d embrace my food loving photography self and showcase some of the foodie pics I’ve collected through the years – enjoy!
