I took this photo during the summer month of July when we have a plethora of figs in my country, Cyprus. It is for my first recipe book, in the salads category where tasty, special, and unique salads are prepared for. The choice of the ingredients, the choice of food styling, the natural light, shadows, and composition was the most important elements to create this photo and to complement the rest of the photos in my cookbook. The cooking, food styling, and food photography of the book is completely carted by me, Athena Constantinou.
