Why Food Is Such A Great Content On Social Media



Why food or foodie post? Because it is one of the greatest contents I have found effective on The Equinox Fashion Blog. In fact, I am doing a food review too, so having the related content on my social media would be an ideal. When the food in Bangkok, Thailand is so variety, I find it difficult not to share what I have consumed while living here. It is not like bragging, but more to the 'art of eating' Personally, I love checking out those images on Instagram because they always make feel happy (for some reasons), while I am tempted to find something similar to eat. Besides, it's pretty challenging to create the photos to look great on the profile (obviously, if we are having a theme). It is just fun to make people think that the food photos on my Instagram are posh and expensive, though, some dishes are even from the street market. Like I said, visual can be very impressive, which depends on how we create it. Do you also love using the hashtag of #foodporn? Here is why I think such content is a big deal on the social media. 


ADMIT IT, WE ALL LOVE EATING



Aren't we all? I love experimenting on food (though being picky about the hygiene sometimes) and I have been enjoying eating in the daily routine. I don't really go to the restaurants, or cba taking photos when I am too starving to give a d**** I still love the taste of the food I consume. From authentic Thai food, to flavorful Indian cuisine, I literally love producing the great content about food to the audiences and followers. Apart from a fashion blogger, I do have another side people rarely see. My lifestyle is so simple that I can even wear a flip-flop outside without a makeup on. My life on the Instagram and reality is slightly different, but it is real. I am just a girl who love food and enjoy the art of decoration of the plates. Art is everywhere! When I see the food photos on others' profiles, I always like them without thinking because I just love a content like that. Especially, brunch...How can you guys take such a great photo of what you have for the brunch course?! The photo above is call Sulbing (Korean dessert style) Is it a snowflake? NOPE it's beyond the snowflake. Mine was a Sulbing Mango Cheese (a cubic of delicious cream cheese) served with sweet mangoes, yogurt ice-cream with condensed milk on top. It's one of the best things I have eaten so far!


Squid Ink Spaghetti from Volcano (Thai) Spaghetti House


Although, you might think it's a bit gross in this picture, it tasted good af! It's a seafood squid ink pasta I ate at one of the Italian restaurants in Bangkok. As Reader's Digest suggested, the squid ink can slow the growth of the cancer. However, my mouth, lips and teeth turned black after the meal (lol). It was good, no smelly or anything. 



FOOD FOR PHOTOS


I order many of what I want to eat, as well as, what would look great on my Insta feed. It is not what I feel ashamed of because I know there are many bloggers out there who do the same thing. I think taking a good foodie photo has become a norm in a blogger's industry nowadays, despite the fact that some places do not allow the customers to take photos. It is a ritual for me and some of my blogger friends to order a few plates and take photos before consuming them. Yet, it doesn't mean that I spend money just to do that. I order, I take photos, and I eat them all. If you know me in real life, you will see that I am just a person who love eating :) 

อาหารใครว่าเรื่องเล็ก! บนโลกโซเชียลการถ่ายรูปอาหารลงบนไอจีนี่ถือเป็นเรื่องไม่เล็กเลยทีเดียว เพราะตอนนี้รูปอาหารเหล่านั้นสามารถเป็นอีกหนึ่ง content ที่จะช่วยให้คนสนใจบล็อคหรือโซเชียลมีเดียของเรามากขึ้น บางครั้งอาหารทีุ่่ถ่ายก็ไม่ได้มีราคาแพงหรือหรูหรา แต่พอถ่ายรูปออกมาอาจจะดูเป็นอีกเลเวลนึงก็ได้เหมือนกันเพราะการถ่ายรูปและฟิลเตอร์สามารถเปลี่ยนทุกอย่างได้จริงๆ สาวๆ หลายๆ คนก็คงเคยสั่งอาหารทั้งที่ตัวเองอยากกินและอยากเอามาถ่ายรูปใช่ไหมหละ? คงมีหลายๆ คนที่เป็นเหมือนกันเพราะแก้วเองก็ทำนะ สั่งทั้งที่อาหารที่อยากกินและอาหารที่ว่ามันน่าจะเหมาะกับอินสตาแกรม ไหนๆก็สั่งมาแล้วเอาลงเลยก็ดีเหมือนกัน มันคงทำให้บล็อคเราดูน่าสนใจมากขึ้นนอกจากเสื้อผ้าและการแต่งตัวไม่น้อย

  6. I love food pics on Instagram, too, and I loved seeing these on your account! I truly believe that everything in life has an art form and food is no exception! That said, I really admire shots taken of food in a more artistic way, like you've done in all of these photos, it's so pretty and makes the food look that much more appealing and interesting! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead, beautiful!

  7. Dear Gail, I never thought before about if food is that popular in social media, but after reading - and especially watching - your post, I'm convinced you are absolutely right! Honestly now my month is watering, thanks for taking all the wonderful pictures of the food you had in Bangkok :)

  8. Girl!!! These pics are AMAZING! My mouth is watering looking at these pics. They are so well done. And thanks for bringing up this subject. I was just talking to my friend about this the other day when she asked why people are so into taking pics of their food and sometimes posting them right then and there are the table. Food porn pics certainly inspire me to try new foods and restaurants in my city and places to travel in the future <3
