Admit it, we’ve all taken far too many pictures of our meals (before we’ve even treated ourselves to a taste) in an attempt to capture the perfect shot to share with the Instagram world. But there is definitely a skill to ‘gramming food. Who better to take a cue from than the queen of cooking Nigella Lawson who shared with Huffington Post Australia’s Lisa Wilkinson her top tips for the perfect #foodstagram.

Lawson, who describes her own Instagram profile as “eating updates and other occasions of joy” says variation is key, as is light and composition for capturing food shots. “Every now and then I will see a beautiful photo and I’ll look at the person’s feed and see that every single photo looks the same. Well then I get a bit bored,” Lawson said. She also suggests to only post things that give you absolute pleasure.  

Thanks to Lawson, maybe next time we’ll get the shot first go before our meal gets cold. Maybe.
