.food photography. homemade pesto!

In addition to the okra that I bought at the Farmer's Market, I also snagged some gorgeous sweet basil. The color was rich and the scent was outrageous- my entire apartment smelled of basil. As a longtime pesto lover, I knew immediately how I would use this bunch of deliciousness. 

About a year ago, I purchased a cookbook by Chef Richard Bertinet that to be honest I bought purely based on the incredible photography, but I've since used the book for its actual purpose and every recipe I've made has turned out.

I want to keep practicing my food photography skills, so..

Here's what I saw during the pesto making process:

I hope y'all have a fun weekend! I'm headed to Georgia to visit a friend of mine and secretly hoping for cooler weather and changing leaves.
