There are many things that unite Malaysians, but we all know what sits on the top of the list; our love for food. We Malaysians love food so much that crossing states over the weekend for a food hunt is completely normal and not unheard of. We would scour the nation for Pasembur in Penang, Asam Pedas in Melaka and Laksa in Johor. Many of us also love clicking away, capturing the beauty of our scrumptious treats to share whether with people close to us, or the whole world!
Food pictures in the social media sphere never fail to make our mouths water and stomachs growl, especially the beautifully photographed ones! In support of the culture, Samsung Malaysia hosted a food photography event to taste and capture the essence of food through Galaxy J7+. The event saw several food enthusiasts and media friends testing out the first smartphone in the J series with a dual camera at Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights.
“Pictures, in general, are a great way to document memories and introduce people to new places and foods. What better way to document a great meal or catch up with old friends over “food therapy” than by taking a picture? With this in mind, we are proud to bring you the Galaxy J7+ and its fantastic dual rear camera that allows for better focus, greater depth of field and sharper clarity,” said Mr KM Liew, Head of IT & Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
While a handful of us has mastered the art of great food photography, many are still working on their dexterities to capture gorgeous food pictures. Taking good photos of food, especially with a smartphone, is a skill to be mastered; but with a gadget as nifty as the Galaxy J7+, your mission to curate social-worthy food pictures is half accomplished. Now to collect those hearts on social media, possessing smartphone photography skills can go a long way in increasing the likeability of your pictures. If you are familiar with photography, you know that light, style, perspective, timing, quantity and quality of the subject all collectively make a great photo. These things are not much different when you photograph food with your smartphone camera.
Here are some of the pictures taken with the Samsung Galaxy J7+.
