It’s everywhere. You’ve seen it on twitter. You’ve seen it on facebook. You’ve also seen this in newspapers.
Some of you don’t take food photos while you are out for a meal. There are some of you who review restaurants and take photos of what you eat. Some restaurants have started banning food photography.What do you think about this?
We asked our friends on Learn Food Photography facebook page about this. Below are their thoughts with credits.
Helge Taksdal Good. Flashes are distracting, and the world doesn’t need more noisy, underexposed shots of food.
Jay Campbell Newsflash that horrible picture taken in low light with your phone doesn’t look appetizing. Stop trying to brag to your FB friends and texting throughout your dinner and simply enjoy the moment with the people that are actually with you.
Meaghan Harvey I have to admit, even though I take a lot of photos of my food (obviously) I can totally understand where they are coming from. People can be so obnoxious about it! I actually think flash photography should be pretty well banned from all restaurants and bars.
Martin Snow No phones? No photos? What’s next, no talking to the other people at your table? I have no desire to patronize a restaurant like that.
