Tamron Blog: Sit Up And Smell The Coffee : 1/50 sec | f/5.6 | 24.0 mm | ISO 100
 

We're probably all guilty of over thinking things, particularly photography shoots. Do I have the right lenses, have I packed the right accessories, is the light right, do I need to take my flash guns...these are just a handful of questions that probably cycle through a photographer's mind and yes, there are times when they are vitally important but sometimes, it's just about getting out there and taking a photo of a cup of coffee. 

Of course, we don't literally mean get up and take a photo of a hot beverage but we're using it as our metaphor for just simplifying things from time-to-time. We were actually out in Sheffield with the Tamron 10-24mm shooting architecture and stopped for a coffee break with thoughts of converging verticles, patterns and lines running through our heads when the quick snap was captured. Drinks were ordered and when the tray was placed on the table, with not much thought at all, we started taking photos of the cappuccino as it just looked pretty good sat against the dark background.

Yes, it could a little sharper to the front and if we were to take it again, we'd check this but the point we're trying to make is that sometimes, a photo could be sat right in front of you without any pre-planning and over thinking needed. So next time you order your skinny latte with an extra shot of espresso, perhaps you should take a photo of it, too.
