Excellent photo! I like the shallow depth of field that you have used in this photo, isolating the first cup. Very nice black and white tones as well! #1077553

I love this shot Kristy. Especially because I'm an addict LOL! I wanted to ask you a question, what kind of light did you use for this? Did you use any reflectors?

Love it! #1091043

Kristy E. Lane February 08, 2005

Hey, Anahelena--thanks for the comment! I actually just used window light...that's the bright light shining on the left side of the cup. But, I placed the cups on a white foam board and had another behind them, both to reflect light. Thanks again!
