March 14, 2007 - steaming coffee
much more difficult to get a nice steam than I expected! I was trying out some more takes for dgrin's Last Photographer standing contest - my present entry is champagne over which I struggled much more :)..well, certainly gets me interesting topics for dailies !
with all this going on, the sun decided to set as well
Love everything cept I gotta agree bout the steam looking a little fake.
Good luck in LPS. I have yet to capture anything I'm even remotely happy with enough to enter. I love your current champagne entry... not sure any cup of coffee will beat that :-) And I Live for coffee!
Man, I'd like a cup of that. I like everything but agree that the steam looks a little off, maybe because it has too defined contour lines? I love the champagne shot, by the way, as well as the description of the mess it made!

like the composition- balance of cup's lines and pile of beans; light and dark; and tones of brown. wondering about the steam. how'd you do that?! LS

like the set-up, the lighting, and the black background that draws out the shape of the mug and plate. steam looks a little fake to me, though. still, nice shot.
