Now that I'm in culinary school, my phone memory is almost used up with all of the pictures I've taken of different food. I'm thinking of putting everything I have together in some sort of blog or something because the plates are just too amazing to keep hidden on my phone! kayellejaye 7 years My ex and I used to take pictures of what we were eating or had just made to make the other one jealous. Actually we still do it! wackdoodle 7 years When I cook something new and I want to show the process I photography it and put it on my MySpace page. I have a group of friends who also have photos of the food they've made and we basically share our recipes and show how we made it to each other. Of course my friends are freaking a professional chef and a professional training pastry chef - so their stuff looks amazing. My stuff looks like it came out of an Easy Bake Oven. Tabloid 7 years Sometimes. Mostly birthday cakes and foods from the cruise. emalove 7 years Only if it's something spectacular. x_juicyfruit 7 years Sometimes. It depends on what it is and how good it looks. If I've tried out a new recipe, then definitely. MandyJoBo 7 years I do sometimes. Sometimes food just looks...pretty. Also, almost everything looks super fancy and yummy on my dinnerware, so I took pictures of a lot of meals when I first got them. aimeeb 7 years I have. When I made my first fondant cake you better bet I documented that headache!! 0danielle0 7 years When I was in Eastern Europe last fall, I must have taken pics of every meal. Mmm. Dana18 7 years Only Birhday Cakes. will205 7 years i must admit - pictures last longer than me attacking my food! so i have to take pics, lol! ilanac13 7 years nope - i'm not one to take pics of my food - however i am a firm believer in food porn...and i'll tear pages out of magazines for things that look too good to be true...and that i would never eat becuase of the cal/fat content. tuscanstellina 7 years I do it for my blog. GrapeBubbleGum 7 years I attempted to keep a food blog for awhile so I took photos then...they never looked good though. The combination of my horrible photography skills and horrible lighting in my apartment led to some pretty unappetizing looking foods. Now, I just like to photo foods that are maybe a little different or interesting. I took a lot of food photos while I was in china. silly3 7 years I've done this while traveling, which is a fun way to remember a vacation aside from the scenery. I was in Vienna and Prague last year and have several photos of the plates of food (from right above the food - not from the side or any angle) that were served - nothing incredibly exotic - but to my surprise, they were some of my friends' and family's favorite pictures. kiwitwist 7 years only if I made something really beautiful OR if I am doing a blog for the Kitchen Goddess Group! jspeed 7 years If I make somethign really great and photogenic at home, I might. Usually I don't think to until it's too late! I would feel really weird pulling out a camera (even a cameraphone) and taking a picture of my food at a fancy restaurant. RosaDilia 7 years Only if it's something special and i'm proud of.
