Do meals only happen if they’re photographed? These days, as social media influencers say: “The camera eats first.”
If your goal is to improve the food photography in your social...feed (sorry), check out Foodie. It offers filters that make dishes look even more delectable in photos than they are in real life.
Foodie has a filter for every occasion.
The Yummy YU3 filter gives colors a little boost—but not so much that they look oversaturated.
The Fresh FR1 filter can take carb-heavy brunches or meat-and-potatoes dinners—which can look brown and bland in photos—and brighten them up by adding just the right amount of contrast.
The Plain PL3 filter opens up the shadows on your plate and shows off more detail. If you still can’t see all the texture in your cotton candy, tap the screen and experiment with the exposure-setting slider that appears. Adjust the intensity of the filter by tapping its name and moving the slider.
Overhead shots are perfect for food photography, but seeing the screen can be difficult when you’re framing them. Foodie’s clever Top View mode turns on automatically whenever you hold your iPhone parallel to your plate. It allows you to snap the shutter by tapping anywhere on the bottom part of the screen, so you can focus on framing without leaning so far over the table that you fall facedown into your avocado toast.
If you're having trouble capturing a dull dish, the Plain PL3 filter opens up the shadows and shows off more detail. If you still can’t see all the texture, tap the screen, then experiment with the exposure-setting slider that appears. You can also adjust the intensity of the filter by tapping its name and moving the slider.
No matter what, don’t forget the fork. It’ll make your meal look eminently edible.
