Handy Candy

A collection of M&M candies shot for the weekly challenge for the flickr group Macro Mondays. This week's subject was "Fast Food" -- food that's not so good for you. I extended this idea to include these sweets since they're a classic portable fix.

 

Snapped with a Pentax K10D using a smc P-FA 50mm lens and a 21mm extension tube. Pumped the saturation a bit in RAW post processing.

 

I only had about 30 minutes before leaving to work in order to grab this shot. Set up a saucer with these candies in the morning sun and started snapping away. Changed to the 50mm lens and altered the angle a bit to find this composition. Did a touch or two of PP from the RAW file and uploaded it. The EXIF data shows that story (Taken at 7:55 am, uploaded at 8:13 am).
