Each time I do a Detailed Review for a product for the CoffeeGeek site, I shoot hundreds of photographs. In addition, my camera(s) come with me almost every time I hit an event, a conference, a show, or a competition. Plus I have a digital camera handy anytime I do something a bit special in an espresso or coffee cup. It all adds up to literally thousands of photographs on my hard drive. These are some of my favourites.
One note - these photos are copyrighted by me, and belong to me. That means no use in any commercial way - be it eBay auctions, or selling anything at all. That said, if you would like to use any of these photos on your non-profit, personal websites, or even in print for purely fun reasons (no commercial use at all), you are free to do so - just drop me a line letting me know, and you're good to go.
I get exposed to a lot of latte art in my life, but it is always a challenge to photograph it well, and photograph it quick - latte art quickly fades and blurs, degrades and gets dull. But sometimes, I can capture the good stuff and make it look good.
Machines and Things
As I mentioned above, I shoot a lot of machine pictures, and every shoot, I try to get in a few "artsy shots", as it were. Here's a selection of them.
And here's an assortment of other photographs. Some show some of my best poured ristretto shots; others are action shots in cafes and events. Still others are some people I know in the biz. And the last one? That's me, finding out my La Marzocco machine blew a house fuse :)
