We alternate our cover stories mostly between retail and restaurants. With this issue, it was time for food, and since it was for Winter we leaned towards warm food items. The concept for this photo was to create a darker cover with a hint of color. The black background is a vintage pizza tin we use frequently for our food photos, the silver dish was a thrifted $3 find, and we love the texture that the crumpled parchment paper adds.
Calamari is a great go-to appetizer choice and the breading adds another layer of texture. The pop of green from the parsley and the bright red of the tomato sauce adds a hint of color…like the promise of Spring. Clifford, one of our office dogs, was very attentive during the photography process and thoroughly approves of this dish. Dig in!
