With this shot, I wanted to remember a handmade pasta typical of the Abruzzo region in Italy. Guitar spaghetti. It has ancient origins handed down from generation to generation, even today this type of pasta is made with a special instrument with a wooden frame, the pasta is spread on the strings just like those of a guitar and cut into spaghetti.
The preparation of the set: preparation, lighting, preparation, and realization of the pasta, is all my work. And the fact that this photo has been selected gives me emotion and strength to continue in this discipline. Thank you.
There is something about photographing meat, I just don't know how to describe it. It's such a primal instinct, I'm shooting it but all along I'm thinking how tasty it will be! I didn't want to complicate this shot with too many props, simplicity was key for me. Dark, moody, and with a limited color palette. Rich red and brown tones, dark wood, and shiny steel. I used the main fill and barn doors to add a highlight to the fork and texture of the meat. I can tell you this was delicious, perks of the job.
Store-bought honey cake slices with some extra flair added. One of my favorite images from my personal practice collection. I used this as a case study to improve my lighting & styling for an upcoming job as I wanted to see how I could style and modify the light to show the texture and color enough to make it so that anyone who sees this image could almost reach across the screen and grab it.
The client wanted the simple rustic charm of the cafe's decor to be communicated here and the complexity of this dish's presentation was a great contrast. I wanted to keep very minimal attention on the cheap paper serviette (which I always prefer to replace with a fabric one where allowed by the client), so chose a super narrow depth of field to keep the attention on the dish itself. The DOF is what makes this shot, exaggerates sharpness, and holds the viewer's attention on the pancake here, edible flowers, berries, and syrup while letting the rest fall-away to a blur...
The Colours of India. This photo includes a range of modern Indian dishes including starters and mains. Indian culture is generally very colorful with public holidays such as Holi. The vibrant dishes and the food itself here reminded me just how bright and beautiful the culture is. The dishes are surrounded by some of the key herbs and spices included in Indian cuisine such as bay leaves, cinnamon, chilies & lychee.
I used a Nikon D750 with a 24-70mm lens to shoot this.
Sometimes, the best shoots are the ones that you do spontaneously. Usually naturally shy, I decided to jump on the bandwagon on this Orange shoot. I was feeling Zesty that morning and wanted to reflect my mood through this Citrus shoot. Hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor.
There’s this cook who lost his job during this pandemic, he used to work in a very recognized sushi restaurant and was trying to survive by selling sushis from home. I really enjoyed the look and taste of his product, and thought was a really great idea to make a few pictures to help him promote his business.
Turbo-delicious piece of juicy, perfectly prepared salmon served by chef Tomasz Milewski from The New Island restaurant, Mikolajki Leisure & SPA Hotel - it was the euphoria of tastes, smells, and colors. (Mowi salmon baked in salt with wine and saffron sauce. Beetroot powder, chives oil, and young carrots boiled in oranges).
As I just started my journey as a food photographer I use all the plates and cups I can find "usable" in the house :)
As I had my breakfast I thought, wow this looks delicious, let's photograph it with a little extra: the beige napkin and keep it simple: the wood from the table was enough to style it, so it stays plain and simple (the way I love my photo's best: less is more!
