Scavenger Hunt #33 – Temptation

Melting chocolate; the squares are still visible but are definitely on the melting side.

While I used the previous Hunt to experiment with composites and story-telling, I wanted to go “back to basics” for this Hunt, and try to get maybe closer from my comfort zone, but also closer to pictures that feel like “me”. But, for the personal challenge, I shot everything with my 100mm macro lens!

When I was first brainstorming this Hunt, I was first considering going in the same direction as the previous Hunt with all the manikins. “Temptation” was one of the few words for which I had an immediate image in mind: that of a manikin posing in a suggestive position 🤣. But I decided against it, so you’ll have to take my word for it that it would have been awesome.

Instead, I took the opportunity of Pierre experimenting with chocolate (as it often happens in this house) and took some pictures of melting chocolate.

Chocolate is fiendishly hard to have proper colors for – I think I managed pretty well on this one. I’m not super happy with the picture in general, it could have done with more depth of field and more sharpness, which in turn would have meant more light, which in turn made things complicated. And at the time I realized it could have been better, that chocolate was more than melted! Later opportunities presented themselves, but I didn’t seize them – but oh well, it’s still a decent picture. It makes ME hungry, that’s all that matters!
