Dishtag photos of the week
Sesame latte, hojia latte & oatmeal rasin cookie, taken at Lungo by @_c.andre
This photo is great for so many reasons!
1. It showcases something as simple as coffee but in such a beautiful way that makes us want that right now!
2. Andre nailed the composition here: if we try to draw lines on all the elements in the photo we can see clearly the perfect intersection of 45 degree-angle lines coming from different direction that form more angles when they meet. See table position, floor patter, the line that the two coffees create, the phone at an angle.
3. Good use of empty space as part of a balance composition, see top right corner of the image.
4. Desaturated colours create a feeling of calmness that goes perfectly with the ritual of coffee.
Taco Platter taken at Brickhouse by @clai_eats
We chose this photo as one of our week’s favourites because we are transported to Mexico just by seeing the brightness of the colours in this picture!
A taco platter could be a hard one to shoot (especially as side shot) as it could look “messy” given the number of ingredients that compose this dish. In this case though, Calvin did a magnificent job in capturing the essence of this dish making it look very appealing.
Black truffle brioche, taken at Campsite by @ericsgeography
We love the super close up angle of this pic that feature perfectly the “petit” items that are part of this dish.
We also like the way that Eric chose to showcase the items, at an optimal angle that showcase both the cubic shape of the brioche but also the star-ingredient which is the truffle at the top.
Last but not least, we love how the texture of the wooden plate creates depth in the image.
Great job Eric!
Millefeulle taken at Belon by @foodievez
“Four incredibly flaky airy pastries stacked with a scrumptious vanilla cream filling ?” – says Evelyne about Belon’s millefeuille dessert.
We feel that her photo is the exact translation of her words in image, that’s why we love it! The image perfectly showcases all the four layers of the cake, the “flaky” texture of the pastry and the soft vanilla cream that just make you drool!!
Also we love the bokeh effect* in the background that creates an elegant mood in the image and reflects well the vibe of a high-end restaurant like Belon.
*What is bokeh effect?: the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that often features highlights and light sources with a peculiar and pleasant out-of-focus blur.
