A few notes: Most of the credit for this shot goes to my team, The World Wide Shooters who's cry for more steam took a shot I liked and made it score much better than I would have guessed. The steam comes for some over microwaved coffeewater and a microwaved wet paper towel hidden behind the cup. The coffee looks weak because I took a lot of shots and by the time I got this one, the real coffee was gone and what you see here is hot water poured over used grounds. Lit with 2 flashes, umbrella up and to the left, and one on the right with an aluminum foil snood tightly focused on the cup and the steam just off frame.
