A Bit of a Good Egg

Still life can be fun and looking for images to fit a theme can help to stimulate the creative parts that other styles of photography cannot reach. So set the theme, then start to think about how to make various images around that theme. Collect together the props, set the scene up, sort out the lighting and finally, the quickest part of the process, shoot the images. Then onwards to Photoshop if required.

So today the theme is Eggs. These pictures are what I put together, why not have a go as well. It doesn't have to be "Eggs" but it could be.

Spirit of the Egg


When anyone asks me how they can generate some inspiration into their photography I often say find a project. The photography can be part of the project and because it then has a purpose it makes it so much easier to start to think about the image makeing. Eggs are a small beginning, and very tasty too.

No eggs were hurt in the making of this blog entry.
