Do you ever take photos of the things you make? My Dad thinks it's weird that I do and he's positive nobody else does it, but I've seen loads of people on LJ do it, especially in places like food_porn.
If you take pictures of your food, why do you do it? For me, it has two purposes. I've always found it helps when posting a recipe (which I do along with the pictures) to have a picture of the finished product so you can see what it's supposed to look like. Secondly, a friend of mine has a little trouble following recipes that are just words, so to help him out with the recipes I post, I take pictures of each part of the process so you can see what to do as well as reading it.
What about you guys?
