Psychedelic slugs

By geranium
Oh, go on then..........they're jelly beans.

Had a few problems with this trying to show white jelly beans against white paper. Had to settle with having a slight colour to the paper. Any advice most welcome.

Another good one to add to the collection Bev. Shooting a white object against a white background is never going to be easy and I suspect your coloured paper idea is the best way to go.
Good framing too.

Excellent title as the series goes from strength to strength.

Some of them might be jelly beans... but think the dark ones are slugs.

That reminded me that my neighbour's cat ate the slug that was crawling accross it's food bowl yesterday.
As Richard said, white on white isn't easy & I think some compromise should be expected. This looks spot on to me - I think a slight colour to the paper looks more natural.
I wonder if you could help with a problem I have with photographing sweets & share your secret on how you manage to photograph them without eating them first?

Richard, Tony , Eric, Soupy and Pam - thank you for taking the time to comment.

Craig - the way to not eat the sweets is to buy ones that you don't really like (or get really cheap pick 'n' mix ones like these that taste awful). You won't find any pics of Thornton's chocs in my portfolio!
