    Foodstagraming...

    Hi all
    In today's newspapers,,,,Foodstagraming,,,taking photo's of your food in restaurants.
    Restaurant owners in New York are getting fed up of it,,and are banning the practice.

    I hope it doesn't spread,and our resident food photographer has to use surreptitious means to get his photo's to us.

    Here's a link to the story...

    Foodstagram: the restaurant trend that’s driving New York chefs crazy - Americas - World - The Independent

    So be careful if you go to a New York restaurant on a cruise,,,hide your camera.!!!!

    Some not most JC, I think most of the resturants are delighted to see the photos published, it's only the very posh ones I think who want to protect their celeb customers who refuse to allow it.
    What better recommendation for a business than free advertising?
    As one said' what are you going do take the phones and camera's of the customers'?

      Hi CG
      I think its the 'bad' photos they are concerned with,,due to bad light,useless cameras etc,making the food look bad.

      Think of SR's photo of those kippers,,,i bet RCL would be delighted with that one!!!

      There is another news item this morning,,,Graduates being paid to write bad Food/Restaurant/Hotel reviews.
      What damage could they do,accompanied by a badly taken photo?

        Food presentation is an art form in itself, why be ashamed unless the restaurant is bad at it!

          Hi Malcolm.
          I agree with you,but thats a problem with food photos.......they dont tell you what the food tastes like.

              Oh well, I hope food photographs continue to be smuggled out of the restaurants and onto the forum........they're amongst my favourite of all the photos.

                Personally I cannot stand food photographs good or bad, although I have been known to take the odd one myself.

                Probably because when it comes to food I am not very adventurous and only like what I like, most photo's I see of food put me off rather than entice me.

                I have see some excellent photos of food especially from 5*/6* Ships dining rooms, and posh restaurants , rather than entice me to take a cruise with them, it puts me off, basically because none of the food appeals to me. Not knocking those who rave over theses menu's, but not for me.

                Strange I was looking at a photo yesterday of the food at the Azura naming ceremony, the photo did not look very appetising, but in that case I enjoyed the food, Beef Wellington.

                  Fair enough Delboy............we're all different. I prefer any on-board shot to scenic photos and my favourite part of any cruise day is in the bars and restaurants in the evening. Photographs taken in these venues are therefore my favourite and I can't look at enough of them.

                    I see nothing wrong with taking a photo of a meal provided you do it quickly but I do object to the awful adulteration of the English language.

                      Hi Bob,
                      Your post intrigued me, What photos do you take and what are you preferences? The reason I ask is that I album all our holidays, nights out that are special with a commentary, I even fill in a diary because I can forget things. My Darling used to be my backstop but she is getting as bad as me now (Oh no I am not she says) Too much pantomime, that's her trouble. Is this off topic, do you think.? I wouldn't want to cause a fuss.
                      Ta ra,

                          Foodstagram is just a 'name' - a noun - just a derivative of Instagram from Apple/iPhone.

                          It's just a 'name' and no more an adulteration on the English language than the made up names Neil Down and Ida Down.

                          cheers

                            Hi Alan,

                            I'm not a keen photographer so just snap away at anything. My point was that I like to see photos on the forum as they say so much more than just words. I get so much enjoyment from other people's photos that I've started adding some of my own.

                            I particularly like photos of inside the ship, and as I say, I love evenings on board spent in the bars and the restaurants. We love speciality dining so I'm more than happy to see photos of these venues and that includes the images of the food that's on offer.

                            I'm happy to look at landscapes too...........but the shots of cabins, bars, restaurants, food and drink are the ones that I most enjoy.

                            I love the idea of your albums with the commentary and they must be great to look back on. I'm afraid all our photos just pile up in a cupboard but we have our favourites looping on the PC as a screen saver.

                            Mind you, we're creating an album of our last cruise.........and the few hours preceding it
