With Valentine's Day approaching, we thought it would be fun to practice shooting sweets: candy wrapped in shiny, colored paper; chocolate (solid or melted); hard candy, soft candy ....
Remember, this is not a contest; it's a Photo Challenge, designed to give you something to photograph in between our monthly contests. Here are some past Photo Challenges that we have run:
For the Sweets Challenge, ePHOTOzine suggests using a macro lens or setting, a tripod, and other props, and says natural light and the correct white balance will give you the best results. Here's the rest of the post.
But as you can see from candy photos on other sites, a macro lens or setting isn't necessary and may not even be desirable.
Here are some really creative candy photos.
And here are Google images of candy to spark your imagination.
We'll run this Challenge until Valentine's Day ... and make sure you give your sweetie the real thing, not a photo ...
