The art of food photography--with a smart phone camera

In 2013 a camera is an appendage for most of us. It is almost always at hand, costs little or nothing to use, and increasingly, it is becoming a powerful tool for marketing.

This piece from the Wall Street Journal looks at how restaurants are encouraging customers to take photographs of their meals for the purpose of advertising.

It got me looking for advice about perfecting food photography—much of which translates well to the smart phone camera.
