How about a hot cup of coffee, or maybe with some milk? Here are two examples of a shot of a cup of coffee on roasted coffee beans. The idea was a shot of hot coffee after the beans were ground. Both pictures were created using a 3-Light Setup. 2 Lights behind a diffusor, one slightly above and behind the shooting table to create a nice highlight on the foam in the mug, the other from the left to expose the grinder and the glossy cup without creating a spotlight. The third light is on the right, using a snoot as modifier, hitting the scene on a shallow angle to make the texture of the coffee beans visible. Finally, a droplet of milk hits the surface of the coffee, creating this form respectively sculpture. On the second picture, artificial steam was added in post production, to give the idea of hot coffee. Hope you like it, I am gonna make me some hot coffee now …
