In my spare time I look for potential clients by looking at there websites and to look over the photos that showcase there signature dishes. What I found was one of my favorite restaurant, Clementes Trolley Pizzaria. Looking at the photos on the website I notice there were not many. The two that stood out was the Meatball Dish and their pizza oven. I decided to ride my bike down there the next day. Mind you it is only a few blocks from Truman Annex. I wanted to try my new camera on a plate of chicken piccata I took the night before. Satisfied I biked down to Clemente’s. With my back pack snug I proceeded to the bar. I was looking for the owner. I ordered a Sangiovese wine and the meatball. It took a bit of time, but I was preparing my self to speak to the owner. I found a spot in the corner and asked if I could have a seat. He obliged and I sat down. I noticed some photography on the wall and took notes on the exposure and lighting of the pieces. I was on my last few sips and the meatball arrived. I took several photos to adjust the shutter and iso. When I was finished I uploaded it to my phone and proceeded to check them out. I saw the owner and was nervous and fumbling with my words and I presented him with my card. His critique, dueley noted was he wanted a close up of the dish. The card was from my first batch and it had some wrong information but I hoped to hear from him. When I got home I realized that I could use a light box to bring out the texture and zoom in on what was appealing. Here is the photo and by the way the meatball was delizioso.
