Food posts on social media are, without a doubt, one of our favorite topics to explore. From glamorized fresh produce to mouth-watering images of burgers oozing with cheese, it’s the strong food visuals that always seem to bring forth the most Instagram hearts. With that in mind, we interviewed food stylist Henriett Braun, asking her to reveal five expert tips to master the perfect foodie post.

1

Natural lighting always makes for the strongest photo. If you find yourself in a dark restaurant, amp up the brightness factor by asking your dining companion to shine their cell phone's flashlight on the dish you wish to photograph.

Keep the color of vegetables vibrant by blanching them. Briefly place veggies, such as broccoli florets, in boiling hot water and then immediately plunge them into a large bowl filled with ice water.
