Attention, foodies of Tampa: @ThisBabeEats is celebrating our love of food and taking pictures of it (we all know that phones eat first) with an Instagram Food Tour of our favorite city on Saturday, November 10!

This will be one tour you and your taste buds won't want to miss as popular food blogger Kiera Andrews has hand-picked some of the city's best eats for you to try including bites from Brew Bus Brewing, Nebraska Mini Mart, Taco Dirty, Soho Juice, Empamamas inside Armature Works, and Bake 'N Babes inside the Hall on Franklin.

Andrews will also be giving you tips and tricks on how to take pictures that are worth gaining 38.5K followers on Instagram. If you're aspiring to be a gourmet on the gram, you'll definitely want to take notes as she's built up an organic following of 40,000 foodies in four years between Tampa and Austin.

In addition to being a talented photographer, she's also passionate about bringing authentic content that she knows her followers will find both delicious and divine on camera.

“I would never post a picture if the food doesn’t taste good," says Andrews. "Your followers trust you and, therefore, they depend on your honesty about where to eat. People are passionate about food and would be upset with me if I told them to eat something that didn’t taste good. I don’t want that!”

During her Instagram Food Tour, Andrews will teach 30 of her most loyal followers all about posting their food on Instagram to get a record-breaking amount of likes. She emphasizes finding the right lighting and going out to eat at the right time of day.

“It really depends on the setup of the restaurant, like which side the windows are on and where the natural light is coming from. I always recommend using window lighting instead of artificial lighting and moving the subject around to find the best natural light," she says. "Artificial lighting is something I always try to avoid!"

If you want to become an Insta-celeb or world-class foodie, Andrews says you need to be passionate about food and photography. “This is something I would love to see become my main source of income, but, for now," she says, "I’m enjoying sharing my palette with others and hearing what they think of my favorite foods!”
