Macron is a French confectionary, it is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond power and food colouring. The name is derived from the Italian word macarone, the Italian meringue.
Even though I don't have much of a sweet tooth, I do enjoy a macron once in awhile. This photo was taken with the 200mm f/4 macro lens. It was lit with a flash to the camera left and the settings were 1/160sec at f/8 and ISO 400. I think we can definitely take food photography to the next level and capture the nice food that you are about eat, so try to turn your meal into something creative next time!
