Many people have a favorite food, drink or snack at Disney Parks (mine is a toss up between the Hollywood Brown Derby’s Famous Cobb Salad and the Tortilla Soup at San Angel Inn). I also love a good picture of a meal every now and then. I am not the person who Instagrams every food item I ever have the pleasure of eating. Which leads me into my “don’ts” list:
- Try to take a photo of everything you eat. It’s just too much. Stop. You’re making it less special by doing so (exception: food bloggers/other related fields).
- Take photos in dark places unless you can light it properly.
- Include distracting things in the photo: people in the background, other items on the table, etc. unless it adds to the story.
- Take so long to take a photo that your meal is cold or the rest of your group is halfway through their’s.
- Get in the way of other guests who are trying to enjoy their food.
- Take advantage of seating outside if you plan to photograph your meal. Natural light is lovely.
- Take a photo right when you get the meal before eating any of it.
- Take a photo or two of the setting as well (the sign, the building, etc.)
