Coffee Portraitures

with one comment

Aside from this being a very interesting topic for a video, I think this demonstrates what we’ve been learning in class, which is the five shot rule.

This video opens with a close up of somebody pouring coffee into a cup, and talking in the background. Then there is a wider shot of him working. By about the sixth shot, we finally see the subject, Mike Breach, who is the artist of the coffee portraits.

I found this video to be very interesting, and it definitely drew me in and kept me watching. The shots are in a logical order and it makes sense. It makes for a great story the way everything is set up.

You can find more of Breach’s coffee portraitures on his Tumblr.
