(SPOT.ph) From gourmet delicacies to greasy goodies, the art of creating food porn has taken the social media world by storm—and anyone with a camera phone in hand can take part. But with everbody wearing the "photographer" hat nowadays, a simple point-and-shoot approach won’t cut it. If you truly want to stand out from the crowd, then you need to step up your game. Check out these six quick steps for taking better photos:


Find your light

Lighting matters! So use natural light whenever you can by shooting by a window or in the open. If you're stuck with flourescent lights, take your shots with something like the LG G6 which has a special Food Mode feature that will get you perfectly saturated photos every time. Also, don't forget to switch off the flash when you don't need it, and make sure to always keep your shadow out of the way.

Flaunt the details

Pay extra attention to the things that make your food subject photogenic, like the delicate swirl of the frosting, the glossy finish of the sauce, or even the pattern of the crust.

Take it easy on the edits

The most appetizing shots are always the ones that don’t rely on filters to look good. So stay true to your subject and hold off on edits that would drastically change colors or textures.

With a good camera in hand, especially one with wide angle lens and 360° panoramic rotation like the LG G6 has, you won't have any trouble taking more dynamic and dramatic shots.
