Tonka bean is the mystery bean, when you forget to put the lid on the jar with tonka beans you can smell it in the whole kitchen! But adding some grated tonka bean in creme will make a difference. In the photo I wanted to reveal the structure / texture of the tonka bean, I added two more beans in the background to add some depth to the photo. -Focus was done on top of the first bean. -Working distance 20 to 25 cm. I used f/4 to have enough depth of field to reveal the structure of the top of the bean. -Exposure -0.3EV (multi-zone or matrix metering)
