Eggs in Black and White

three eggs rob paine

This photo was pulled from my oldies file. Its of an object we typically see and use every day, an egg (please see more text below)

The first time I photographed white eggs was for a college lighting class. The challenge is how do you create different tones and shadows shooting something white on a white background.
The thinking being, if you can accomplish lighting an egg or a group of eggs in this case, you can light nearly anything.

It was fun exercise and taught me a great deal about the nuances of lighting.

By the way, several years later when I would need to photograph the occasional unfurnished apartment complex model for a commercial assignment, the tricks I learned in my lighting white exercise proved to be very helpful, as the majority of empty models I have shot were painted white.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, Rob
