Since I was fourteen years old, I have always been passionate about gastronomy. About five years ago, during my free time, I started making chocolates. It was through the sensitivity of creating these delicate sweets that I realized my passion for art direction and crafts.
Photographing and staging them became my favorite part of the process. It was then that I realized my true professional guidance, and, in the same year, I started discovering the world of design and art.
Last year I had the idea of recreating these beauties the way I used to make them: triangular shaped milk chocolate truffles with gold foil on top. Then, I decided to photograph them.
The photos were taken with a Sony Alpha 7 mirrorless camera. Although the photographs are digital, I managed to overexpose them to create a natural soft grain, giving the photos an analog appearance.
As a result, I created a soft aesthetic that could reflect the purity of gold.
