Why Photograph Your Food? Why Not Photograph a Stranger’s Food?

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. A food photography problem, that is. Instagram is riddled with pictures of photographers’ meals. Ranging from simple meals at home to extravagant fare at the fanciest of restaurants, the abundant photos of food make you wonder if the person behind the lens ever eats anything without documenting it first.

In this video, the food photography trend is taken a step further with a prank revolving around taking pictures of strangers’ meals:

Though this video depicts only a prank, it doesn’t seem all that far-fetched. In fact, it’s reminiscent of a popular skill-building project amongst photographers, in which the photographer vows to create portraits of 100 Strangers. The assignment helps photographers become comfortable with approaching strangers while advancing their portraiture technique.

Choosing to improve photography with a subject-specific project may at times seem amusing and worthy of parody, but it can actually be quite beneficial. Practice makes perfect, after all. No matter how quirky your passion may be, it’s important to keep building your photography skills.
