    Re: Pour Art

    My first attempt at this sort of photography. This was on my new (2 days old) Giotto. Hope the pictures not too large.

    Yes, very shiny! I think you should dirty things up a bit...;)

    Great photos James. How many did you take till you got a shot you were happy with?

    Re: Pour Art

    Took quite a lot of pics over about 6 shots. Luckily the camera does about 6 frames per second so i can bang off about 50 odd in the first half of the shot. Even still, only a couple of good ones per run. Damn hard to get good focus, and im still having trouble with the depth of field.
    My biggest problem is i cant bare to waste the coffees, so i drink a bit on each one (which adds up quickly), then i put the rest in an ice cube tray, ill try a block of espresso ice in a glass of milk when the weather gets a bit warmer. Not sure if it will taste ok though.

    My first post!
    I didnt know this site existed.
    Great to find an Australian based coffee site.

    Thought Id give a link to Green Tea Latte.
    Will technically not coffee, I think its a great picture.

    http://sigmatestudio.com/?p=45

    Re: Pour Art

    Hi Sigmate,
    Welcome to CoffeeSnobs.
    That is a crazy coloured latte! Dont worry that its not coffee, there are a few out there that love tea. Also, if you too love tea, Beanbay on the left sells some excellent tea.
    Not only is this a great Australian based coffee site, but without a doubt the best forum of any type i have ever participated in on the net. If you need help with your coffee journey, you are bound to find the help here you need. All you have to do is ask.
    Anyway, enjoy.
    James.

    Thanks for the welcome james74.

    Although not as "pretty" as the green tea latte from the above link, this latte was delicious!

    I gave myself bonus points for complexity of the shot. Shot being pulled with the left hand on the lever while the right hand is doing the camera work and a cruddy plastic tamper. New Pavina glasses today too 8-)

    Resulting Latte of Harrar was so yummy there was no shot left to take ::)

    Na... Add some Orange rind / zest or even a bit of a Vanalla pod to teh coffee in the PF....

    When you pour ya shot the hot water ect does a nice extraction and add an interesting touch...

    Orange zest and in a Mocha - Ummmmm Jaffa.......

    Sorry... OT..

    I do a bit of commercial photography for my work with a Nikon D70, but this little Canon is brilliant!
    The technology has come a long way...

    You inspired me Scoota!
    Every second tuesday night is my normal clean-machine night, (the beautiful bride goes out, so I do the silly things like polish and photograph coffee machines!) so I gave the Reale some TLC, loaded up with some Blue Mountain and had a go with a couple of little spotlights to try and bring out some colour - the biggest issue with these little cameras is the close focus though... but the cupped result was soooo sweet (you forget how much a good chemical flush improves the taste until you do it again!)

    Good fun none-the-less!

    PS sorry about the ugly mug reflected! The light tent photos will have to wait...

    Oh my goodness! All that CHROME! :D

    Kind of detracts from the coffee actually! But all good!

    Now...wheres the shot of you taking a shot pouring a shot so we can see the "little spotlights"??

    Yes. Timing is tricky but I found that it was easier to set the DSLR to multi mode and let it take a quick succession of photos...that way I would be more likely to luck out and get the "god shot"!! ;D

    I have taken a few shots of the setup early on with the DSLR, which were certainly sharper and cleaner, but it generally requires a tripod and all the bitsnpieces - these little cameras are so cool and quick! This shot was hand held, with the flash turned off - everything else was auto! My DSLR would need manual WB with a card, tripod set at amazing angles, exposure comp etc etc....

    And by then the coffees gone cold!

    Heres a comparison shot - boy I have fun taking photos! Doesnt matter what it is, or what its with... ;D

    Thanks bjeck for your kind words! :)
    We were very blessed to be able to renovate our 100 year old cottage, and the work finished 4 months ago - it is so lovely to have space, clean floors and a new kitchen, after old vinyl floors (3 layers!), head banger cupboards and mice in the skirting! Food and coffee prep is now soooo much easier (and more hygenic!!)
    Nothing lasts forever, but we certainly feel very privileged currently...

    Re: Pour Art

    ive found with my 6910 and 0480, a good grind setting is around 15.5 -16

    Provided a good tamp, it pulls a nice shot. Ive found if the grind is a little fine with the same level/tamp the machine surges a little - but that could be a filter issue (i havent replaced it since new 1.5 years ago)
