Before I get into my totally non-bullshit post today, I would like to dispute Serafina’s lies from her last post. I’m an expert at being self-righteous, so listen to me. I didn’t read whatever book she was talking about, and I never will because I don’t even read this blog, but I can say with total confidence that you don’t need to grow your own shit to feel better than everyone.
It’s called Farmer’s Markets + Instagram.
I’ve sung Instagram’s praises before, but really, I can even make myself jealous on that platform with my own past posts. Sometimes, I even think my life is amazing.
Just take some pictures at the market and brag on IG that at least YOU support local businesses.
Don’t have a Farmer’s Market? Snap a pic at your local grocery store/gas station. It’s all about angles, bitch.
This might be a good time to start my planned post. It was totally planned! It’s not because I take a lot of food pictures but don’t actually write down recipes! *laughs nervously*
I’ve been thinking a lot about food blogger pictures, and how they basically all look the same. Brightly lit, sharp focus, appetizing colors, etc. But you know, Serafina and I are ACTUAL artists and believe art should be organic, like what your food should be (eyes judgingly). We let our food speak to us.
Sometimes, at least for me, my food is being an asshole and won’t talk.
I recently discovered Foodie, an app that makes my (totally not shitty looking food) talk.
Maybe if I spent time staging the food, bringing out my lighting kit, and using my real camera to take pictures, I would have better results. But since that’s never going to happen, I modify my pictures with filters.
OMG I HAVE GMO PICTURES.
