Volare Italian Ristorante

Volare is a wonderfully delicious Italian restaurant in Louisville, Ky located on Frankfort Ave. This shoot was for The Voice-Tribune weekly newspaper. Chef Josh Moore is the Executive Chef and Partner at Volare. I have never eaten here at Volare, but while shooting Josh prepared me and April (The Voice-Tribune editor I was) with a fantastic pasta dish. I will most likely be coming back for a full meal soon!

The portrait of Josh was lit with a lumopro LP-180 as my key light through a 43in Westoctt Octabox and I used the natural light from a window to fill in some shadow detail. The shots in the kitchen were mostly done with what ambient light and a flash off bouncing off the white walls.

These photos were all shot with a Nikon D600 and 50mm lens with a Lumopro LP-180 off camera flash through a 43 inc octabox.
