Before we tuck in – Those food photos


This is a usual sight for us (well, more my husband) when we go out to eat. There’s a whole bunch of photos with me concentrating on my phone, with my mouth wide open, before this one. Then I noticed when the other half was doing. I’m no photographer but I think I am obsessed with taking food photos whenever we go out somewhere. That’s just normal, right? We both like to eat but I’m one of *those* people, the one that has to take photos before we tuck in. It means no-one is allowed to touch it before I’m done. Little Z is used it now but the baby not so much. For now I sometimes catch a cute little fist trying to swipe something.

I’m mostly used to people at other tables rolling their eyes (or whatever) and hardly now care. I do try to be discrete about it but sometimes it takes time, doesn’t it? Especially if it’s not quite set right, or it’s a bit out of focus, or the light is bouncing straight off the shiny smooth cutlery.

Ideally, I think I’d love to just stand on the chair and do it from a greater height to get more empty space in but a) Restaurants probably frown on that and b) I’m not totally bonkers, yet. Still, completely normal. Right?

  1. It’s not just reserved for bloggers, I take a very quick snap, my kids want the light right, they’ll stand up and away from and move round the table to get the right shot for snap chat and make us waist before we can start to eat

  2. I hear where you’re coming from….it just isn’t usually food I take pictures of! I find the responses can be very different. Under 30: “Are you vlogging / blogging?” Over 30: silence and utter confusion. Hope you had a good meal.

  3. haha, I actually saw someone else do this the other day and it felt a bit weird watching them. I only do it if I’m already on a review, or have made a recipe at home. To be honest, my husband photograph’s his food much more often than me and he’s not a blogger! I hope it was as delicious as it looks when you got to tuck in.

  4. And the verdict is…… I’m sorry but you are totally bonkers, just like the rest of us! I don’t take too many photos of food, but when I do I have been known to stand on a chair shouting instructions for the family to move plates, but that is only in the comfort of our own home. It’s probably only a matter of time, though.

  5. Lol my husband is always sent off to higher places, when we are out at an attraction, people must think we are bonkers! The seven children now know not to touch anything that comes through the post until i’ve photographed it, or made them change three different outfits for different reviews!
