About this picture

 
Nothing better than a cup of hot, invigorating coffee in the morning!


Since my previous Chino photo of Kotobukiyas “floating” version resulted in a strongly underwhelming final picture, I was curious to see how the attempt of shooting the newer “Alice version” from Aquamarine will turn out. And long story short: This time, with significant less prearrangement I was able to get much better results. So I guess it is a good example for the old saying “less is more”.

Also I have to give credit where credit is due: A big thank you to VikiBuNNy for not only buying the macarons in the backdrop, but also giving me a final advice how to proper set up this composition. Without her help this picture would look significant different. (Different equals worse)

SureFigures (2 years ago) #19462090Always nice to see your work get recognized like this.
Between the colors and the arrangement, I can't imagine a better composition. Stunning work!
Also, I'm curious about the "funny side note." The photo captions have a text limit and it appears to have been cut off.


Hello SureFigures

Thank you and thank you for mentioning the text limit thing. I always tend to write long texts and didn’t know that there is such a thing like a limit. But I guess long texts under the pictures will be sacrificed anyway as soon as my new blog-site and fanpage will be live.

Anyhow, the last sentences was just a pointer that I also ordered the “Stronger” version of Chino as a magical girl and that I was wondering if that future photo will also be much better than this one.
But I guess we will never know if the figure gets delayed even further XD

akarin (2 years ago) #19299264Wonderful photo! I'm curious, is the coffee being poured on the cup, real?! It looks real...but then I'm wondering if it's fake since it looks like it's gonna spill, but not make a mess....lol

Very good question, I'm glad you asked *puts on his nerd glasses*

You're right! It would be quite a mess having the coffee poured into the cup that way, especially with the figure next to it. Not even I would go for such “extremes”.

But never the less, I actually poured the coffee in for real, but with only a smaller built set. First I shot the major jet running down the can into the cup, and then I poured the coffee in more wildly while doing continuous shooting in order to get a nice, big splash.

After that (and yes, the set was now full with coffee) I cleaned everything up, rebuild the set and added the not so waterproof things like macaroons, napkins and of course the figure.

Ultimately I pieced everything together by using good old Photoshop.

Stalgonoff (2 years ago) #19304908Great shot! I regretted not preordering her, but I finally managed to get her at a good price and she should arrive in a week or so (:

All's well that ends well I guess :D
It's a simple yet beautiful figure.
