Photographing 'satisfying' or aesthetically pleasing photos has become a trend on image sharing platforms such as Instagram and Flickr. This genre of photography/art focuses on creating sensually pleasing images using gradients and textures of often ordinary objects at a macro level. The 'food gradient' trend on Instagram is a good example to understand this kind of photography.
