Parkour in the forest

Our most recent guest was a friend of my boyfriend’s that happens to be a professional gymnast who also does parkour. When I took him on a walk in the lovely forests around our house and he sampled the soft texture of the moss under his feet he felt the urge to take a few jumps and asked me to take some photos. The disappointment for the total lack of snow (between Christmas and New Year’s temperatures went anomalously up and all the snow suddenly melted, and with it the hope to see a winter wonderland visiting us at this time of the year) turned into a good opportunity to jump around the forest.

In the woods

As autumn is slowly rolling in, these days I am enjoying the company of a dear friend of mine visiting us in Sweden. Coming from Italy, she is finding the crisp air a pleasant reward after a very hot summer. She has posed for me in the past, when we were both living in Poland and also the first time she came to Sweden, in the middle of the winter, wearing lace on a frozen lake (yes, I like my models crazy), so I just couldn’t miss the opportunity for a photo shoot also this time.  Continue reading

Portrait of a violinist

I don’t only photograph food. That’s what I showcase mostly on this blog, but I really like to shoot portraits, too. The thing about food is just that it passively lets me photograph it anytime, while in order to photograph human beings there are a lot of other factors at play. One of them is the interaction between photographer and model that needs to take place during the photoshoot, the perfect harmony that makes good portraits happen. Continue reading

Autumn photo session #2

The other day when I went out with my friend Ania to take some pictures of her in the forest I didn’t only take the artsy pictures with autumn leaves in the hair I had in mind, but also some more classic portraits. The light was very good and I love taking photos of people in the nature. Luckily, here in Dalarna it’s very easy to find nice spots in the nature for a photo shoot. Continue reading

Autumn photo session #1

I made it pretty clear already that autumn is my favourite season because of the beautiful colours that nature conjures up. Well, I just can’t get enough of it. The other day I was sitting at a friend’s place and her window faces a group of trees that were displaying all kinds of colours against the bluest of skies in the backgroud and I just couldn’t stop staring. So gorgeous. It made me long for a photo session with autumn leaves in the hair and my friend agreed to pose for that. Continue reading

Pregnancy photoshoot

Despite the main focus of this blog being on food, my other great passion is photography. I actually opened this blog with the intention to share both recipes and photos of the food I eat, and often the emphasis is actually more on the photos. Photography is my biggest passion, and probably the longest-running hobby I have. I consider myself mostly a landscape photographer, with a thing for occasional portraiture. This blog was actually meant to push myself to grow in still life photography, a field I have never had the chance to explore much.
