What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? We were at the Rome Italy airport about to embark on a long day of travel back to the States. I wanted to capture the moment of taking time to enjoy a cup of coffee and the elegance of a finely crafted cappuccino with the barista's activity in the background. It was delicious, by the way!

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? My Canon Rebel was packed away but my iPhone was handy. I focused on the cup in the foreground.

What are you most proud of? Waiting for the absolute right moment when the barista was in the background doing his thing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to tell a story even with those elements that will be out of focus. They add not only depth of field but depth of character.
