Mark the Spot - Day 73 #CY365

Fill the frame, use the rule of thirds, blur the background and leave the viewer with no doubt as to what the photographer intended the photo to be about. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/200 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 400, one LED flash light with the beam focused narrowly on the cup.

Irish - Day 72 #CY365

Having a little "Irish" getting ready for St. Patrick's Day. First post with my newest camera an Olympus OM-D E-M1. The first new SLR I ever bought was an Olympus OM-2. In 1977 it was revolutionary for it's small size and high quality. I still have it and it still takes a great pictures.

Olympus OM-D E-M1, 1/1000 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800.

Whole Beans

- A key to a good cup of coffee, start with whole beans, grind with a burr grinder and then drip brew. These beans are called 454 Horsepower by Kicking Horse Coffee, dark and rich and so good. Be forewarned: don't tangle with this horse unless you're prepared to get bucked... Canon G11, 1/200 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 200, lots of LED lighting and converted to black and white using Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom 3.
