I do like ring doughnuts (donuts for my American readers) , but these with a little icing and hundreds and thousands… yes please!
Have a great week
My wife LOVES Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. I thought these would be great to photograph but, there’s too many colours in a regular pack so, they don’t fall very naturally and the photos often don’t work. I found he hipstamatic iPhone image to be much nicer than a regular macro shot.
AND that brings sweet week to a close. This means I’ll have to do some work and get new ideas for next week.
Have a great weekend.
I ‘love’ this photo. I think it’s cute and Elliot loved the love hearts.
Also, my friend, Christos has finally got his act together and now has a photo blog. Please check it out.
One of the things I wanted to do with my macro lens was to get some nice close up sweet photos. I spent a week buying sweets and Elliot was only too pleased to help me set up shots, press the remote trigger and consume the leftovers. At the end of the week of shooting I figured, smarties are the best sweets for macro photography, strong colours and not too many different ones.
I can’t stand Liquorice Allsorts, they taste horrible; however, the blue one looks quite nice. To create this photo, I got a black marble kitchen chopping board, piled up the allsorts and placed a black (or white) card behind them. These photos were taken with the 60mm Canon macro lens. The white card image has a grey looking base, this was down to the flash. I think for the black image, I left the light on and did a longer exposure. I prefer the whiter image, although a line where the card meets the board is clearly visible and quite distracting.
