A quick pasta dinner on a weeknight last week. Cooked spaghetti tossed with pesto and a touch of lemon juice. Chickpeas and ricotta cheese sprinkled on. With very little light left in the evening I tried to take as much advantage of what natural light was left.
Of course, taking pictures of food that you actually intend to cook with provides a tight window of opportunity to get all of your shots. On one hand it might seem like a struggle to make everything as perfect as possible, while on the other hand it forces you to get the best shot possible in the shortest period of time.
I love chickpeas. And pesto too for that matter. I have such an understanding man who patiently waits to eat while I take just a few more photos of dinner.
