Saturday Morning Photoshoot ... Just Me and My Egg.

Camilla (from Bloom) and Carolyn (from Rose Notes) are at it again.  We all had so much fun with their photo workshop last fall, that we're signed up for another round.

Assignment #1, play with exposure and make a supermodel out of an egg.

Hmmm.  Okay.

My egg and I burned a lot of pixels trying to do something imaginative.  Here's the part of the assignment where we were supposed to play with light and black and white backgrounds.


I put a sun flare on this in PhotoShop, to spice it up a bit.

I liked playing with the harsh shadows in my south-facing dining room window.  It started to remind me of going on a school field trip to the planetarium.

Then the egg and I went outside to see what was blooming ... this is mostly a garden blog, after all.


The grass is certainly greening up ... and those old-fashioned Butter and Eggs daffodils are my absolute favorites.

I took this last photo in direct sunshine, with the egg at the bottom of a round crystal vase.  I love how the reflections and shadows blur the boundaries of the egg.


If you want to see some really creative people playing with their own eggs, head over to C & C Photography.  I'm going there myself right now, to see what everyone else has done.

  4. I like the lines that the crystal makes on the egg, I could imagine tracing them in pencil and watching as the sun moved.

  7. I love your black and white shots...the shadows are great and I know that's hard to get right but you sure did. Your daffodils are beautiful, the egg fit right in. But your last shot...now that is really creative, beautiful, unique! I'm stunned by the variety everyone has in their egg shots.

  23. Well hello to someone in my neck of the woods. I am in Maryland, but lived in NoVa up until last year. I love your shots, especially the last one. I had to look at it for a while to see the egg. The lighting is amazing in that shot.
