Scrambled Eggs

By chase
Got this idea whilst making my breakfast.
The eggs are fresh from my neighbours' chickens, I was lucky there were a few white ones in the dozen I bought.
The little nest is looking a touch tatty now but I thought it added a different dimension to this.

Taken in daylight camera left, diffused with my big soft box to help with the highlights.
Raw file converted in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a straighten up crop, levels, contrast and a graduated texture on the bg.

As per, there may be a couple more from this session to follow.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe, be happy.

Just boiling a couple of eggs for my dinner. Coincidence.

Fine and atmospheric, down to the 1950s fizzy pop bottle with porcelain top, I remember those as a kid. Very well done.

You always come up with some wonderful still-life images, Janet, and this is no exception, it's eggs-cellent! 😃 Love those bottles, if you only sup half the contents they can be sealed again, unlike the metal caps, once they're removed there's no putting them back on 👍

Simple ingredients, and not too cluttered.
I am just wondering if it would be even better if you swapped the eggs, so that the white ones contrasted with the darker nest, and the brown ones contrasted with the white surroundings of the milk and the jug?

A wonderfully cohesive collection of props - love the brown and white eggs (both nutritionally the same) combined so expertly for a delicious dish.
Excellent still life, so well composed and captured.
