Taking pictures of our food and sharing them on social networks has become all the rage. A tip from a Tribune pro, demonstrated with this photo of pork belly at Zak's Place in Hindsale: Most dishes, you're shooting diagonally at an angle between 30 and 45 degrees. Perhaps the dish is best photographed from a "bird's eye" perspective -- looking straight down. Make sure it really is straight down, not slightly askew.
