This was dangerous territory I was venturing into during this photo shoot. It was not totally unexpected. Yet, I did not remember it ever being mentioned during the two macro photography classes I took online.
I opened the bag. The delicious smell of corn candy (my favorite at this time of year) wafted into the air. So far, I was okay.
Laying the candy (artistically of course) on the background, I noticed imperfections in certain pieces of candy. Imperfections are greatly multiplied with a macro lens. Not wanting to spend lots of time editing the photo I decided to eat the one piece that was definitely not perfect.
I had crossed the line. There was no going back! The imperfect pieces of candy corn needed to be dealt with quickly!
No, I did not eat them all! Sure thought about it. Instead I saved them for next photo session.
