Default Coffee press fail...

Amber knocked my coffee press off the counter cleaning today. It had already been a stressful day, and she was getting pretty emotional about it.

So I got out her camera and started shooting knowing it wouldn't take long for her to steal it from me and do what she does

Lots of good stuff, but these are our favorite two. First are unedited, seconds are messed with in Photoshop; honestly to better match the kitchen when we print them.

All lighting is from my Lava Lamp base with a 40w bulb. No flash.

Plus I couldn't resist over processing one into a murder scene for a new background.

hahaha you posted them! I'm a little slow checking here. I got some other really cool shots that I'm proud of too. At first, I was not excited and didn't want anything to do with the mess. But when I actually stopped to looked at it, my mood changed and had to play! :D

Thanks for posting them for me!
