Should I take photos in restaurants?
Is it OK to take photos of food in restaurants?
It's a big issue for food bloggers. I posed the question on Twitter, and got a mixed bag of responses back. Nobody seemed quite sure, and there's certainly no consensus.
You've paid for it, it doesn't affect the other diners so unless you start demanding waiters adjust the lighting ok, surely?@TheAmpleCook echoed this:
I think it depends on the restaurant, the proximity of the next table etc. However, it's your food and you're paying for it.@CulinaryTravels sat on the fence:
that's a tricky one. partly I feel it is bad etiquette but then I love to read blogs about restaurant reviews with pics too ......and seemed to ponder it some more...
... definitely a tricky one.@daveycraney got straight down to the rules:
photos in resteraunts, flash = bad, no flash/camera phone = goodSomething tells me photographing plates of food is a little rude, but I can't really put my finger on why.
Why does it make me feel so uncomfortable? Am I over-reacting, as usual?
