A little while back my son asked if I would photograph a coffee shop for a website that he was designing for them. It was an interesting challenge and I enjoyed the work, the next three blog entries are going to be from that project. I love to be able to tell a story in a photograph and for me this image goes a long way to telling the story of The Buzz. There is motion in the image as the coffee is being poured (1). The lighting is warm and soft and through the steam there is a couple of friends talking in the background (2). As I was shifting around trying not to appear in reflection in the coffee pot I noticed that I could achieve a position where the stream of coffee appeared to reverse itself and flow up into the cup that is reflected in the pot (3). I love it that we can see both the outside of the cup and the inside in the reflection. If you would like to see the website check out The Buzz.
