Black and White and Flour all over.

Yesterday was the final shoot for the "winter" section of our recipe book.  We decided that we wanted to do a 'how to' section in the book, and that the Italian pasta, cavatelli's, would be the perfect opportunity to do so.  Lauren's family owns a cavatelli maker, so we were able to make the dough and the little noodles fresh on set.  Thanks LaPenna's! 
This also seemed like the perfect chance for me to do something a little different with my photography, as well.  I have never shot any type of 'how to' before, and rarely use people (or any of their limbs) in my photographs. I have also fallen into a habit of shooting very clean, very colorful food photos, so doing something raw, gritty, and black and white was extremely refreshing. 
The above grid is an example of how this 'how to' will be displayed in our recipe book, showing the step-by-step cavatelli process. Below are each of the individual photos. Let us know what you think!
