Welcome to episode 27 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! After last week’s Halloween theme, I thought it might be appropriate to go to the sweet side of things: Candy!
Of course, everyone has their favorite candy, or maybe even more than one type of candy… Therefore, I’d like to challenge each of you to share your favorite candy and make it look irresistible to each of your readers! After all, what fun is candy, if it’s not the best things out there? Of course, you’re always allowed to use a bit of poetic license in your choice of candy; for me, strawberries are also a form of candy!
From about 6 years ago, when I was taking a course in food photography, I’d like to share these delicious M&M’s with you (yes, they may be out of date, but they still look good 🙂 ).
The bright colors of each of these little wonders just jumps up at you, yelling ‘pick me!’, so you know that you want one of them…
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
This should be a fun week and we may even learn about some exotic candies!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 1D MkIII using an EF24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were at 1/160 second with f/11 and 100 ISO with studio lights; you might notice that with studio lights, I’ll often dial them in to get around 1/160 second at 100 ISO, as it works well for lots of subjects.
