Baked Beans on Weetabix? Tweet the tastiest pic with these food photography tips!

Baked Beans on Weetabix has gone bananas on social media, thanks to a brilliant bit of marketing by two giants of the breakfast food business. Twitter has exploded with people hashtagging, snapping and sharing shots of their own beans and 'bix concoctions – but if you want your tweet to trend, you'll need to take something worth retweeting! 

That's where some classic food photography tips come into their own. Yes, the current hashtag mania is a bit of silly fun, but that doesn't mean it's not worth taking a bit of time to set up a proper shot and do things properly – and a great photograph is far more likely to go viral than a grainy snap on your phone!
