The Coffee Cup (Painting with Light)


Coffee. Is there anything better than coffee? Well, perhaps, but, never mind. The above taken with the antique Speed Graphic, with the 135mm lens. The lens was pulled out to full macro, beyond the focus track. Then it was titled forward so the near and far lip of the cup would be in focus even at F-22. Spirit courtesy of time exposure and a flashlight waved above the cup. The flashlight provided light on the cup, and the reflection in the coffee. Simple lighting!

I really dig the light here, it gives such warmth - I can smell the coffee.

Amen, coffee is a strong argument for the existence of God. Hey, I wandered over to your place(s), and noticed you're a C-villian, and woolen mills too. I wander back and and forth distractedly between La Taza and the Downtown Mudhouse.
That the reflection on the coffee came out like that was a miracle. I don't think I could get it to happen again.
