After yesterday’s less-than-stellar food photo, I thought I should redeem myself today with a picture that took more energy and creativity. We went to a pasta shop down the road from our house this weekend. This was our first visit and we were beyond impressed! Fresh pasta, bread, ravioli, & sauces — all made fresh each morning. We decided on spinach linguine, Gorgonzola cream sauce, and fresh bread.
We whipped up our lovely Italian meal tonight and here are the results. I have a feeling we’ll soon become regulars at that pasta shop. I’ve challenged myself to work on my food photography since it seems to be my biggest weakness. And as much as I love food (admitted foodie), I plan to use it as a subject often. The hubs and I constructed a light box this weekend — actually, he built the box while I gave instructions (he was in for helping once he heard the words “box-cutter” & “duct tape”). I’m still playing around with the lighting and such, which is crucial since I don’t use Photoshop. I’m open to any advice to those who use one! 🙂
