trenchermen tortellini for bon appetit

I recently photographed a dish from the highly anticipated Trenchermen restaurant here in Chicago for Bon Appetit magazine. Since Trenchermen is still under construction, we turned part of Bangers & Lace into a tabletop studio, as you can see above, so thanks to them for letting us use their space for a few hours. I had the camera boomed partially out of convenience but mostly because it was perhaps the darkest day of the year with thick overcast clouds blocking a great deal of the sunlight. I ended up shooting everything at like 1/10 second or something just to get the proper exposure at ISO100. Aside from that, the bounce cards and window were my only light sources and for a few frames, including the top image, I added a negative fill black card above the dish to intensify some of the shadows and contrast.
