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