Weekly Photos – Coffee in a Capsule

Works been really hectic lately so I haven’t really had a chance to take pictures while it’s light out. Instead I’ve been using this as an excuse to practice my macro / still life photography once I get home.

A few years ago my wife got me a Nespresso espresso machine for Christmas and since the capsules are so colorful I thought they would make an interesting subject for my mini photo shoot.  To keep the background interesting, I picked up some assorted card stock from a local crafts store, positioned one capsule in front to draw the eyes, and moved the others around until I had a configuration that I liked.
