Hot Chocolate and Doughnuts

Sep 13, 2007
Northern VA suburb of Washington, DC
My next-door neighbor gave me these donuts, so of course I had to photograph them with this week's serving of hot chocolate. The combination was absolutely delicious!

Photo of the Setup
The tabletop is a vinyl floor tile and the background is textured white art paper with its color changed during post-processing. The lamp is fitted with a diffusion sock to soften the shadows. The black wood block propped up the white reflector at the ideal angle that ensured that the vertical part of the mug's handle would be bright. (Otherwise, it would have been black.) Ten focus-bracketed images at Nikon step size 3 were stacked in Helicon Focus at its default settings.
