We’ve all heard the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and when it comes to professional food photography, it’s a good idea to give a nod to that saying. Also when Jeannine Delwiche first coined the term “you eat with your eyes first” she was referring to the idea that visually absorbing something is proven to change how we taste and smell the food we see on our plates. Gone are the days when you whip up a meal in a rush against the clock, present it to your customers and move onto the next order. With social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook rising in popularity, ensuring meals are picture-perfect, while also remaining flavoursome, has never been more important.
