Submission: Coffee


And here's mine. I started off with just a trail of beans, but decided that I wanted a bit more context, so used this grinder, which I thought had an interesting shape.

Well done. Only grinder I have is a Krups electric one and it doesnt quite fit the bill. Nice that you found some shiny beans too.
I considered trying to capture the swirl that cream makes when you put it into coffee, but was worried about camera position and steam, so didnt to that. I'll post the other picture I was going to use later on as well. Did you have hassle with this one or was it a chore?

It was a bit of hassle, as I'm not very creative with this still life malarkey, so it takes a while for me to come up with an idea. I used studio lights, which made the whole thing unbelievable easy, as all I had to do was concentrate on taking photos. Next time, I need to get creative with the lighting as well.
