The Whole Point of This Dinner Concept Is Getting a Good Instagram Shot

Because the documenting of the experience is more important than the experience itself.

Stop pretending that you go to fancy dinners for the actual food. We all know the real reason: you want to take pictures, and make your Instagram followers green with envy. FYI network wants to capitalize on the popularity of the hashtag #foodporn, and now a new company wants to help novices get their own money shot.

Foodography, a series of dinners and workshops specifically designed around the food photographer and Instagrammer in all of us, is a new concept from Carmel Wineries, according to PSFK. Israeli chef Meir Adoni has created a five-course dinner that caters more to the shutterbug than to the food fanatic. One dish, called "360," is served on a revolving plate so that videos can capture every conceivable angle of the food.

One of Israel's top food photographers, Dan Perez, is also on hand to share tips and tricks to make your food look way, way better than it actually may be. Plate ware is designed to hold a phone camera, and provide a neutral background for the image. Watch the presentation, below:
