Sometimes I remember that, before being a cooking fan (a very amateur one), I am a photographer.
Those moments happen when I have clear in my mind a photo I want to shoot, and no matter what, I must succeed.
The picture of today is one of those: I bought these beautiful "fioroni" figs, ie the first figs that come to maturity, and wanted to photograph them in a rustic setting and a with certain kind of light.
Unfortunately it was already 7 PM and my studio is anything but rustic, so I had to complete my auto assigned "commission" with what I had available: some props, my artificial lights and a good dose of imagination.
The result will not be precisely equal to what I could do if I had at disposal a cottage in the English countryside but in my opinion is quite credible, what's your opinion about it?
You could read the cooking part in the next days...
