Instagram and Foodways Writing

Using Instagram has given me an opportunity to explore food more visually. For instance, visually documenting some of the differences in regional Mexican food has been one of my favorite aspects of using Instagram. Some of these images have prompted me to research into these differences—for example, the distinct origins of flour and corn tortillas. It has also been an outlet to document research, like posting a screenshot of an interesting article along with a small blurb about what I learned from it. My Taco Literacy Instagram account is a sort of portfolio in itself, and has given me an opportunity to practice my food photography skills.
