Candy Anyone

Uploaded: October 14, 2012 11:10:02


Created indoors using a flash. Taken with my 35mm lens at f2.2 at a range of about 12 inches from subject. This left a very centered focal point at the corner of the dish with the rest of the candy fading into the background.

I like it Marcy! I really love the shallow DOF and small area of focus on a subject like this, where you have a lot of the same item in the frame. Good choice with the off center dish as well :) oh btw, what is an xtra click photo? #1493787

Are these Red Hots? I agree with Susan there is a lot of depth and the composition makes it interesting. #10379500

Thanks Susan and Ken! I liked it too but wasn't sure about the shallow DOF, so it's really good to get confirmation.

Yes Ken - they are red hots, from the dollar store

Susan - This photo was used in my photo class - Understanding Digital Photography: Beyond the Basics. Each week we are asked to turn in a photo we like just for fun - it doesn't have to pertain to the lesson. It's called an xtra click photo. Great class btw. #10379518
