coffee o’clock

the only morning beverage.

2010/04/30: TGIF! To celebrate the end of the week, make an artistic shot of your favorite beverage or libation today. #ds166

I’ve taken similar photos before, but wanted to try something different to see how it turned out. I used the 75-300mm lens (macro at 4.5 feet), put the coffee cup on the floor in the sun, and stood on a chair leaning directly above it to get the shot. 300mm at 4.5′ is very zoomy.

  1. Thanks, Tara. I mostly use a Canon XT (nothing fancy), or my iPhone. No high end gear here. The sharpness comes from having enough light, a stable enough hand (or tripod), and taking several shots to be able to pick the sharpest of the bunch. I think I took about 5 shots to get this one. The others were slightly softer, or I’d tried focusing on different parts (the lip of the cup, the top or bottom of the curve, etc…)

BUT I WANT TO POST A COMMENT HERE. WITNESS THE OPPRESSION INHERENT IN THE SYSTEM.
