A cup of coffee a day keeps the doctor away ;-)

At least I hope that is the case... I sure do LOVE my coffee in the morning :)

Today I took some coffee beans from the office (don't tell my boss!), and decided to experiment a little bit, with the lighting and also with the composition in this kind of shots.

Strobist:
Actually this was a very simple setup. I used two Elinchrom BX500Ri but only modeling lamps (not strobing). Each light was on the left and right side of the table/setup, inside a large strip softbox. Camera was on tripod and shutter speed was quite long, for this shot 1/3sec.
