The trend of increasing obesity in Hispanic women has become a public health issue and a focus of research. To reverse this trend in Hispanic women, one must understand complex behavioral phenomena that are rooted in society and culture as well as the imbalance between energy intake (diet) and energy expenditure (exercise/physical activity [PA]).  Two data collection methods show promise for uncovering concepts which are important in assessing diet intake and PA: photo voice and photo anthropology. This report provides case study analysis of Hispanic women?s photographic perceptions of dietary intake patterns such as food items, food quantity, the meaning of celebration, cultural meanings of food preparation and cultural context of food intake, and photographic perceptions of physical activity patterns such as locations of activities, and the roles of work, leisure, and family.. Following recruitment, the women attended a training session in the goals and methods of visual methods. The participants were instructed that they would be photographing their own dietary intake and physical activity. Following informed consent, the participants were asked to: 1) photograph one day of food intake and food preparation,  2) photograph every occurrence of food intake outside the home for one day during one  week, 3) record their environment during physical activities. The investigators discussed ethical issues of photographing places and people and measures to minimize risks of invasion of privacy. Two sets of photographs were developed: one for the investigators and one for the participants. When analyzing the visual method stories, investigators used Straus & Corbin?s (1998) method of constant comparative analysis to organize the data into categories.
