Instagram of the Week

Put a Filter on It: Negative Space

October 17, 2014

It's no secret -- we love a good 'gram. Here, we'll be posting our favorite Instagrams from the food world, on a different theme each week. Today, it's about the space between.

Sometimes it's what inside that counts (yeah yeah yeah, we know you know), and sometimes it's what absent that's the most present. That's right -- we just went there. Thank us for that glistening nugget of philosophy later.

Since our last abstract Instagram of the Week theme did so well, we decided to try to replicate our sucess. This week's theme, inspired by this photo from Cereal Magazine, is all about

n e g a t i v e  s p a c e. 

So don't fill in every edge of your photo -- give your food and your props some breathing room. Let what isn't there do the talking.

We want your 'grams! Follow us, then Instagram something sparse this week with the hashtag #F52grams -- we'll re-gram our favorites.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
