2/52 - Layered Coffee Liqueur

I'm not really sure how people set about doing a project 365. I'm 2 weeks into a project 52 and I'm already finding it hard to come up with ideas for images. A lot of people do self portraits which makes things a bit easier but I'm not going to get into that. This weeks image is a glass of  layered coffee liqueur from Sheridan's in Dublin. Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

Lighting info after the jump.

The setup for this shot was similar to the Ganesh shot but I used more direct light as opposed to feathered light. I created a bit of Bokeh, to balance out the image, by using a few coloured tea light holders. The flash was gelled with a 1/2 CTO and fired at 1/16th into a reflective umbrella.

Your work is so impressive. I have been following you for a while, and each project is amazing.

I really like the behind the scenes demo - i thought for sure you were in some low lit bar, somewhere. Again, the word that comes to mind is impressive.

Thanks for sharing - it is inspiring.

Hi, first of all, I gotta say, I love the images from your project.

Regarding inspiration, I saw a post on the net ( http://martinsoler.com/2010/06/03/bokeh-love-hearts-candles/ ) mentioning a project from the "Creative Digital Photography: 52 Weekend Projects" book by Chris Gatcum. The image approached a similar theme to the one you are shooting - I hope this helps!

I really want to start such a project myself, and seeing your pictures, makes me realize that there are so many wonderful images that can be captured using the things we already have around us. Thank you, as @Amaris said, it is inspiring.
