Coffee Beans - Photographing Coffee Beans
This photo of coffee beans was taken with 3 speedlites. One through a softbox, one through a translucent umbrella and the other bounced off the white background.
Taking a photo this close up and having everything in focus requires a small aperture. Therefore without increasing the ISO which introduces noise in the photo, the speedlites had to be set at full power.

This photo was taken in February 2014 with a Canon 5D MkIII and TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Macro.
Camera Settings: f/18.0, 1/160 seconds and ISO 200
