Backstage: making of Tagliatelle pasta

Photo shooting on Sunday is starting to be a strong tradition for me. And I really like it!

But this time there was a last minute change of plan. Indeed, while I was starting to set up a Chrismas theme session, my wonderful wife said:

how about if I make Tagliatelle pasta? Would you like to take pictures of it?

Lucky me! I said yes, of course.

So I changed the setting and photograph the complete process: from the making of the dough to the final plated meal.

The gears

For the first time, I’ve used the brand new Tilt&Shift lens from Nikon, the PC-E 85mm f2.8

The lens fits quite good on my Leica SL, thanks to the Novoflex adapter SL/NIK. But as a beginner, it is also a bit tricky to use, although can be very creative and funny.

The light

A flash lamp on the right side and a fill-in light on the left, a very simple but well-balanced setup.

The happy ending

The best part of the shooting is when everything is done and I can finally eat this delicious homemade pasta1

I wish you a relaxing Sunday,
cheers, Sabino
