Taking Perfect #FoodPorn Shots Just Got Easier At This London Restaurant
Dirty Bones is giving customers Instagram kits to snap the perfect photo
With all the care and attention many chefs put into beautifully plating their dishes, it can often feel underwhelming when customers try to snap a poorly lit photograph, only to end up with something that looks less than appetizing. London-based restaurant Dirty Bones is circumventing this issue by giving diners at its new Soho location their own Instagram kits.
The free kits come with everything needed for the perfect Instagram photo: an LED camera light, clip-on wide angle camera lens, multi-device charger and even a tripod selfie stick for overhead table shots. The restaurant itself has also been designed with the “Instagram universe” in mind, allowing customers enough room and natural light to take well-composed photographs. Even the restaurant’s menu has been curated for social media, as it is updated frequently with trending dishes to reflect what’s popular online.
“People love to share what they’re eating on social media, so we wanted to put together something that made it easier to get that perfect shot regardless of the lighting or time of day,” a spokesperson for Dirty Bones told Mashable.
As online reviews and photos become an increasingly important part of doing business for eateries (how often have you dined somewhere based solely on how good the food looks on Instagram?), Dirty Bones is leading the way for restaurants to make sure that what ends up online looks just as good as the food on the table.
