As a MASSIVE coffee fan, taking photos of coffee is therefore inevitable! I’ve been steadily accruing plenty of accessories for photoshoots! This terracotta style esspresso cup is a great choice for pairing with the dark, rustic coffee beans as the colours are similar, yet the textures are polar opposite!
Essentially what we are doing here is working with context. Rather than starting with a subject, we are combining a few props to create a composition which provokes some interest. I’m choosing a lighting setup which compliments the characteristics of these elements. This type of photography can also work well as website backgrounds or in print advertising, for large areas of negative space.
