Last week I got a chance to do something really fun: take photos of Domenica Marchetti for her next cook book that will come out in the fall! It was a cold day, but Domenica braved the cold and posed for me.
Taking photographs of people is definitely not something I've done too often, but Domenica was a lovely and easy going model. After a quick consultation on what to wear, a bit of lip gloss and borrowing of my necklace, we were ready for the photo shoot.
At first I took some photos inside of my condo, but they looked like your standard passport or DMV photos: not ideal for a book jacket. So we decided to go outside.
The photo below is my favorite from the entire session. I just happened to turn my camera horizontally after shooting a bunch of vertical photos, and that's what came out:
I probably took more than a 100 photos and then we ran back inside to my warm place to have tea and to look through all of the photographs, deleting some of the "ooops" ones and leaving the rest.
This one below I absolutely love: Domenica looks like she could be a star of an action TV movie ;) The way her hair blows in the wind is awesome!
These photos, however, would be more appropriate for a book jacket. I can't wait to see which one gets chosen.
That's all for now! Have a lovely weekend and I'll work on some recipes for you over the weekend.
