My last post was about styling tea and what is in tea, how could I resist tea cups.
What is so effective about this photo is how it shows a charming pattern then gives it a modern twist. Not something that happens often in the world of traditional tea cups. The dress with its cut and color are up to date (making a great background as well). Even the way the cup is held with no saucer, is modern. I love the shape of the her nails with the current polish color, that emphasizes the red strawberries in the cup. The color red is a great sales tool as well, it attracts attention and increases the warmth of an object (very handy with tea). Believe it or not, the spoon is essential, the focus is on the product throughout the entire composition and it keeps the upper section of the photo from being too blah or empty. Lastly the placement of the tea tag is perfect. It doesn’t cover too much pattern and sits at a jaunty angle. All very, very well done
