Foodstagrams

Many people consider themselves a “foodie.”  Almost no one can start eating a nice meal without someone saying, “wait, stop… let me get a picture of that.” Although, most people tend to snap, instagram, and tweet about what they are eating, these three Kinkaid students took their love of food to a new level creating their own food instagrams accounts. These accounts (commonly known as foodstagrams) are solely dedicated to what the students are eating and their love for food.

Juniors Bar Pierce and Sarah Vandiver’s account “hungerygals_” features food from the Houston and Austin area. “We created the account because we love food and wanted to show our friends the foods and restaurants we liked,” said Vandiver.

Their favorite post was the video of syrup being poured on a stack of pancakes and their favorite restaurant they have been to is “Up the Creek” in Vail, Colorado.

Eliza Lawrence (10) also has her own account “@eatingwitheliza” which not only features pictures of food from the Houston area, but also food from all of the world, including St. Barts, Dallas, and California. Eliza said that she discovered her love for food last year and soon decided to create an account. Her favorite post was a snapshot of oreo milkshakes on a beach in St. Barth’s. She suggest the best way to photograph food is to take make sure that everything in the photograph is aesthetically pleasing and to take it at an interesting angle.
