How to Capture Sugar Sprinkling Photography

To set up a photo like this one, you’ll need a few things. First, you’ll need a subject. I chose strawberries. The spoon they are on is taped to a stick held in place with a tripod and a clip. I set up in front of a fireplace, which is what the red circles are in the background. My camera is on a tripod and I set my aperture to f/3.2, shutter speed to 1/100 and ISO to 125. I used a speedlight to light the strawberries up and had a friend pour sugar on the strawberries while I took a few pictures. It’s a little blurry as I used my phone to take this, but here is a picture of the set up.

This one turned out pretty neat. Here is the original image.

think it’s cool how the sugar up top is blurry and the sugar below is sharp.
