    I've never seen m&m's that colour. :shock:

    When focusing move the camera until it looks sharp rather than trying to focus. It's easier. Oh, and use a remote shutter or the self timer.

    Great start here. You'll get the hang of it. I usually shoot where I can have my arms propped on something to hold them still.

    thanks for all the comments so far, I think some of the problem might have been not being able to keep the camera still I had to stand over the bucket of m&m's and my head was almost all the way in it.

    I noticed the part about moving the camera other then focusing after about 5 minutes of trying to get focused.

    and the reason the M&M's are that color is because they're easter M&M's my roommate got a 25lb box of them from work lol.

    I'll keep working on the macros though, hopefully I'll be able to post some in the macro guessing game soon.
