My mother is in love with chocolate covered cherries. I bought her a bag of these about 3 days ago. She saved me 10 for a shoot :) LOL!

Believe it or not, it is REALLY not possible to find a kiss wrapped perfectly. I had to unwrap (very carefully) and rewrap this one about 4 times before it looked right and we aren't even going to discuss the little paper sticking out of the top :)

It is sitting on the top of the candy dish lid handle. Light behind me was moved up and back a lot to get the depth I wanted.

Enjoyyyyy :)

And guys, are you really eating sweets after you look at these?

I know I eat at least one of everything I shoot except the truffles... I do not like white chocolate ;)

Really enjoying this series. I think I like this one best so far. I hope you do something with these shots because I'll bet they would sell well. I'm not sure about the whole copyright / trademark legalities of the kisses, though. I won't tell :)

OoooooH! Best so far JoJo!! Gotta fave this. And thanks for letting us in on how you got that amazing, sparkling bokeh!!

And, yeah.. I do eat sweets after seeing your candy images. I bet you put subliminal messages in your set-ups! Like the Cherry Blossom box and the sad looking dog in the cherry - that's it!

This is just so festive looking, and I really, really like the chocolate cherry combo. I think I need to get Santa to bring me some.

Personally I'm not a fan of chocolate, but I do appreciate a good thing when I see it. I'm loving how festive your images are, they really look like an advertisement or card or something.

I repeat, what a fanatastic collection of candy images you are creating! These are not only great as gretting cards, but the series would make a knock-out poster!

Another beautiful image of something yummy. Not fair. My husband has gone to work breakup party ( no spouses, the meanies) and I have had tomatoes on toast for tea. And there is nothing yummy in the house.
