Macro Candy Art - Dissolving M&M's
« on: February 08, 2020, 08:31:23 AM »
Hey everyone,
I did a lot of experiments with dissolving candy and took umpteen thousands of images:
Using candy, sony a6300, the Laowa 24mm F14 probe lens and Sony 90mm F2.8 GOSS macro lens, I dissolved several different sorts of M&M's. The ones with peanut inside delivered the most satisfying results: The sugar layer is thicker which looks like the niagara falls in the macro perspective.
As a setup I used a small fish tank, cold water, a dark background, a bright ring light and for some shots the front light of the laowa probe lens. To get the best quality I would recommend to use a fish tank which shows to distortion and film from the side, otherwise the refraction of light will ruin the image (4K looks like 720p).

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.
