Thanks for celebrating restaurant photo month

Google Moderator

We know Local Guides love sharing restaurant photos on Google Maps. That’s why we dedicated July to celebrating local food culture through photography.

 

What did you think of this celebration, and what would you like to see more of? We’d love it if you’d tell us in the comments. We’re planning to spotlight more food photography and tips on Connect, so be sure to keep sharing your photos with #LocalGuides.

 

In case you missed any part of the month’s festivities, here’s a quick recap:

 

To start, our own @AnnaDickson shared 5 easy ways to take great food photos, along with some wisdom about what it takes to make your pictures stand out. (Hint: not a fancy camera!)

 

Then, we got valuable lessons and tips from some of our favorite star food photographers. Corey Marshall showed us how to take the best breakfast photos and met up with Local Guides at Sqirl in L.A.

@LuisRG, fue muy un mes vibrante y con muchas opciones de platos unos más ricos que otros y fotos de gran profesionalismo, esto demuestra y destaca que cuando el tema es convocante, como lo fue la comida en el mundo, los Local Guides sacan lo mejor que tienen. Que es dedicación, esmero y pasión en lo que hacen. Creo que todas muy buenas también un gran diez felicitado a los que participaron y otro especial a los colaboradores que nos mostraron esos trucos para obtener lo mejor de nosotros, sin ser necesario contar con grandes equipos de fotografía, sino con criterio mañana y un poco de ingenio lograr resultados extraordinarios, al equipo de Connect que está detrás de bambalinas llevando adelante este gran mes de la comida.

 

Gracias totales ...

You're welcome @LuisRG.  Local Guides who participated by learning how to improve our food photography skills and were forced to eat out more (and gain some weight  = )) to practice, thanks for sharing your photos here on Connect and your social media channels.  It was a delicious month to learn more about each other foods and, of course, see all the yummy photos! 

 

Cheers,

Karen

 

 

I was lucky to be a part of the event in New Delhi @ ITC Maurya, Dum Pukht restaurant, and learned a lot of food-photography tips from Shivesh of "bakewithshivesh.com" & Shumaila Chauhan of "novicehousewife.com"

An absolute taste sensation last month has been. We dined, ate and conquered like a local. One of the best months of fun, food culture has really rocketed into Local Guides. What more? As the pinnacle of summer (well, for the Northern Hemisphere) starts and the beautiful season of spring/autumn starts to emerge for both halves of the world, something outdoorsy would be lovely. And definitely more integration with rising/established social media stars.
