Psychology of Food Photography
As a food photographer in Las Vegas, Key Lime Photography focuses on activating emotions that are tied to cuisine. The combination of delicious cuisine and romantic atmosphere triggers synapses between brain cells. Then, a specific collective of brain cells create a perceptive memory. Memories that are formed in relation to our 5 senses are easier to recall than those that are not. This is why you can remember many details about your first kiss, but have forgotten most of 11th grade algebra. Tasting food that you have had before can immediately activate a collective of cells in your brain’s hippocampus. Synapse activation causes you to experience similar feelings to the last time you ate the same food. This is why walking through a food court can remind you of your old elementary school cafeteria. Similarly, eating cheesecake with Bavarian cream, chocolate mousse and a raspberry sauce reminds you of your bachelorette party dinner. Food photography can have the same effect.
