I emptied the two boxes of raisins a filled them up with purple skittles. I laid out a white sheet for my backdrop and used regular house lights. I had my camera on the ground to get to the same level as the skittles on the ground. My white balance was measured when I took a picture of the sheet with nothing on it.

Looks like the raisin box in the background is OOF.

The raisins in the foreground take my eye from the subject in the middle.

Quirky. Looks like a bit of camera shake.

i dont see anything in really sharp focus here, and the wrinkles in the back are distracting

It's quite blurry... nonetheless, a cool execution.

The bokeh looks like little eyeballs on each piece of candy. And they're coming at me. I am now officially weirded out by this image! Extra point for triggering my imagination to run wild. (note - iron your background cloth next time and make your focal point sharper)

Not as clear as I would like, it may have done better in a smaller crop with the back box sharper and no wrinkles in the sheet.
