Sara Webster : Things that Float


canon g10
macro setting
ambient light
set up: white cup, green tea bag, hammered spoon, white textured placemat underneath

Shot just a smidge above the cup on a mini tripod. Started without the spoon and realized the shot needed some contrast. Added in the spoon, and time elapsing helped water color. Sharpened in photoshop and tried the shadow/highlight filter which lightened up the tea to a nice yummy caramel color. Now looking at it, would be nice to have a highlight on the teabag for separation, looking flat. next time, on it.

  1. Even without the highlight, it was good enough to send me to the kitchen to make my own cup.. mmmmm.. I love how the only things really in focus are inside the cup. Nicely done.
