Amateur Food Photography

In the second of two programmes about food photography, Sheila Dillon explores the world of the amateur. Why DO we take so many pictures of food and meals - on holiday, in markets, and increasingly, in restaurants and in our own homes? It's about the relationship between our eyes, our mouths and our stomachs. Real, simple good food, well presented, looks great. And armed with a digital camera, or even a mobile phone, all of us can document our eating habits.
Sheila is joined by Liz Galbraith CREATIVE DIRECTOR of BBC Food Group, to discuss the changing fashions in depicting dinner, and to marvel at the photos Food Programme listeners have sent in. Say cheese!
