I admit: I am a candy junkie! Therefore, today there is a slightly different post about my favorite cake or why I love chocolate ..
I love it sweet and chocolatey – calorie save? Wrong direction!
Every day I see quite a few #foodporn pictures on Instagram and I mean who’s mouth doesn’t water?
So that also your food becomes the absolute Foodporn on Instagram, I have today a few tips for you;)
The perfect #foodporn image
# 1 Yummy? Delicious!
Post only food you really like yourself. Why should you make yourself a chia seed layer yogurt for a picture just to choke it down somehow or even worse, throw it away? The throwaway problem is a further reason why I only post sweets – that usually cannot become cold and taste before the picture just like afterwards: P
# 2 Zoom close
The farther you get off your food, the more uninteresting it becomes. You can no longer see exactly what is really on your plate. Show also the detail, e.g. The delicious daim on the cake. Only then will your picture become real and foodporn.
# 3 Decorate the set
A cake in front of a white wall on a plate? It’s a bit lonely. So look for a set that also reflects you. I make my food pictures for example always in the living room, because here the cake is also eaten later on. Also, flowers, candles, or sweet dishes are small highlights that enhance your picture.
# 4 Let there be light
So that you can put your plate also really beautiful in scene, it is important to have good light. For the light to be always enough, I use two soft boxes. So I can take pictures at every time of the day.
Why #Foodporn pics are so good
However, such images do not just please your subscribers, no they even have a positive effect on yourself – who would have thought?
# 1 More mood for food
As you know, the eye eats with you. Therefore if a meal is scenarized great for a photo, you get more desire to eat it. You look for the best side of your food and get more and more appetite. You also see the food, but cannot have it immediately – and as we all know, we want to have what we can’t have even more;)
# 2 More healthy food
Since you want to post the picture on Instagram you pay attention of course, that only good ingredients are included. A ready-made baking mix? No way!
I as sweets junkie I post of course mainly sweets. However, Food bloggers often pay attention to integrate a healthy part into their image.
I hope, of course, that you now have a great desire for my delicious Daim – brownie cake. No problem, because here is the recipe for free download
