I might lose some friends here, but the pumpkin spice latte is the worst thing about fall. It’s orange and sweet. Too happy and energetic for fall.
Fall has a dark sad life to it. The sun hides under clouds; the plants begin to die. With their final goodbye they explode with brilliant hues. Your energy fades, too, as the days become shorter. Life begins to happen under street-lamps and candlelight.
I’ve never liked photographing in fall. I never knew how to handle the colours. This year I determined to find an editing style for photographing in the fall. It’s inspired by my favourite coffee recipe < Café Picante >. Black cocoa, cinnamon, and red chile flake.
Café Picante Recipe
Mix the spices in with the dry coffee grounds. Prepare using pour over or drip coffee maker. Make sure to use black cocoa powder for a deep coffee flavour. I prefer to add a few tablespoons of 10% cream at serving.
4-5Tbsp Kona Coffee (Kona Blend or similar medium roast)
1tsp black cocoa powder
1/2tsp ground cinnamon
1/2tsp red chiile flake
