This week for the Dogwood 52 Week Photography Challenge we were given the theme of candy and encouraged to take a macro shot. My life continues to be full-on and I found the most difficult aspect was to come up with a concept to shoot, because my mind feels very full. In the end, I had the idea to shot the golden box in the light of the ‘golden hour.’ I think the result is sweet and there is no doubting the theme, but I think it may have been better if I had restrained from eating some of the chocolates and left more for the shoot.

This picture is overexposed, but I like it like that. I think the strong highlights make it cheerful and sunny. I guess I was feeling the vibe of sharing sweets on a picnic in the outdoors with your sweetheart. Perhaps more props would have helped tell that story better, but I only thought of that afterwards.
I hope you had a sweet Valentine’s Day and let me know what you think of the photo.
