beaker of tea

I like the grain, cool light, and rounded forms of this shot. I had toyed around with making it B&W but realized the complimentary colors of the cup -vs- background were what drew me to shoot this in the first place.


  1. If this were mine I think I would tweak the tones just a little to warm it... but that's me thinking 'product' type shot...:^)...or evocative warm blog shot. As a cold cup of tea it is also quite effective, but quite a different mood.

    Is the image on the mug 'Starry Night'?

  2. I'd thought about tweaking it to warm it up, but decided to keep it cold instead, mostly for the mood I was in.

    Yes it is Starry Night, a Christmas gift.
