Today I photographed the new menu created by Chef Gianluca Guglielmi for Donato & Co - Berkeley. For these photos I wanted to create a melancholy appeal. I wanted to realize images that make you feel like you are inside an Italian trattoria. You are sitting at a table and the chef comes to drink a glass of red wine with you. Listen to Italian music together and talk while you savor his new dishes.
The rainy day has certainly helped create this particular mood!
This type of photography has several names - Dark and Moody or Chiaroscuro.
I thank Klo who has kindly posed on this beautiful Californian rainy day.
