Instagram 101: Take Better Food Photos

Instagram 101: Food Photography — Take better food photos with your phone at home and when you're out to eat. |

Doughnuts, y’all. If you eat a doughnut, you’re required to Instagram it. Says the universe. Especially if there is maple frosting with bacon on top. Clearly that is why I took a photo of these beauties from Love Bugs Bakery when I was in Florida for the Space Coast Girls Weekend last month. And also because you do not want to mess with the universe.

Today I’m taking the Instagram 101 series on the road to Five 12 Studio. I’m sharing all my tips for smartphone photography so you can turn your Instagram account into veritable food porn without feeling like that weirdo who takes pictures of all her food. (You’re not a weirdo — I do it too.)

Read my food photography tips then go forth and take better food photos! When you’re done, Clarissa, the lovely gal behind Five 12 Studios and a total Photoshop expert, will help you learn how to edit them.
