“I was making gnocchi from scratch for the first time and I wanted to capture the making-of. There’s a lot going on, composition-wise – flour from rolling the dough, broken eggshells, mushroom and parsley on the side – that suggests the idea of being in my kitchen with me.”
Do you use filters?
VSCO’s Analog 6 filter gives a slight fade, deepens browns and mutes other colours. I use this filter in scenes with rustic wood or a lot of brown tones. And Instagram’s Juno filter adds a subtle green tint and makes the whites glow, so it’s great for dishes with greens.
