I also love smooth 'n melty nonpareil mints. Back in my Diet Coke drinking days, I would eat these and drink Diet Coke at the same time. It was a wonderful flavor explosion in my mouth.
Week Two's assignment in Kim Klassen's 2B class was to set up a still life shot and play with f/stops. I shot in Manual Mode as opposed to Aperture Priority. For all the technical stuff I don't get about photography, I for some reason do get Manual Mode.
I started with the lowest f/stop my macro lens would do and slowly worked up. Keep an eye on the texture definition that comes to the blue felt piece, especially in front of the candy as I increase the f/stop. It is a subtle but pleasant change.
Such a fun assignment, and the smooth 'n melty mints are still delicious, even without the Diet Coke.
