Coffee is always a very interesting subject to photograph. It is full of character and texture
For this photo, we used continuos light from the back. Then we added a silver reflector, from the front, to light the inside part of the portafilter basket and the tamper. And a white reflector at camera right to get the silver metal parts to pop.
Please keep in mind that the exposure settings listed above only work for the lighting conditions I had when I took the picture.
