A photograph created for my first cook book in the pasta category. I wanted a photo with dramatic background that is why I have chosen a dark background with a contrast of the ingredients and their surroundings. The photo was shot – as always – in natural light and the ingredients that composed the pasta was also the ingredients that decorated the whole photo.
