Food Photography: Making of Orecchiette pasta

And here comes the weekend and so it is Food time! Last Sunday I was busy in making of fresh Orecchiette, a typical pasta from Puglia region in the south of Italy.

It was a fun photo shooting, also thanks to the support and participation of my wonderful wife.

Saturday is my Food Photography day!

Today I show you a selection of the 10 final pictures from this photo shooting, with just a bit of post editing with Adobe Lightroom, as the pictures were almost perfect in camera.


The tools

  • Camera: Leica SL
  • Lens: Leica APO Macro-Elmarit-R 100mm f/2.8
  • Reflector: Lastolite round reflector 50mm
  • Various props and decorations

The final pictures

The shooting took me half a day, it was a simple setting, but I will show you the “behind the scenes” in a separate post. Now enjoy the final pictures.
