A few months after the holidays last year, I had this tin of candy just sitting around, so I decided that the bright colors and shapes would make for some good photography. I put the candy on a window sill, and using the natural light, I went to work and ended with this photo.
I do want to say that hardly ever do I just take one photo and think it’s “the one.” I’m always trying different angles, different apertures (to get different amounts of the photo in focus), different focus points, and different compositions. This helps me see things more creatively, but also helps to develop what I like to see.
I like this photo. It shows exactly what I wanted it to (lots of candy), and I like the wood at the top left edge of the photo, which breaks up all the candy and stops the eye from leaving the photo. The candies with their square shapes are interesting to the eye also. And because the subject is candy, it automatically gives it a fun feel, which I enjoy also. Thoughts? Is it a successful photo? Thanks!
