...then they asked me to do with the yellow-brown background color as the blue is not of their trade mark color. So I did.

Now, what do you think?

Thanks.............

The reflections in the coffee could be taken out. It may look better(or may never get noticed) but coffee isn't really meant to shine.

Also good choice, if in doubt, put a women in the shot.

You are right she was not even close to the coffe at all and I shot her in the room without flash for the first time and it is a little with shadow effect over her face but I think it willbe good as it is....or not?

But i'm not sure if i knowwhat you mean about coffe reflection exactly. Only the coffe was taken with the flash on since I have a big big problemtrying to makethe coffe picture with real color of the coffe. Without the flash the coffe is always too dark and seams to be better with the flash but will have some reflaction from the flash. Do not forget that I do not have a studio to adjust all the lights that I need.....I must make something for the urgent "first help".

Well what can I say, it was the best parts of making this adwhile I was shotting her... it was no bore-ing at all. Maybe I will take some other picture from her in photoshop and prepare to show here on the forum. She is very young but nice looking girl.

But which one is better background....blue or yellow-brown?

Regards Zak

I would say the yellow-brown.



For me, it is the foam in the coffee which I thought was the reflection. It might be a bit over-exposed, or it could be my screen. Check it with a print.
