Shoot Something Sweet | May Merriment Day 18

Sweets. They qualify as a food group don’t they?

My favorite vegan chocolate bar!


Today we are keeping it really simple. Grab something sweet and shoot. A favorite snack? Something you bake? Maybe an excuse to visit the bakery?

Try a few things:

  • Shoot from above
  • Make it messy
  • Eat some and then shoot
  • Try a portrait orientation.

One of the interesting pieces I gleaned from Penny de los Santos’ Creative Live workshop was to watch your depth of field. Don’t make it too shallow. Make sure we can see what you are shooting. Think about shooting at f/5.6, f/8 or f/11. Try it out, see what results you get. You will need to shoot in good light and up your ISO if necessary.
