It's getting toward the end of Week 2 at Cheryl McCain's Frugal Still Life class. I've know all week what I wanted to use for my subject, but time is just slipping through my fingers here. Finally, today I got it all set up.
I've become a big fan of organic brown eggs. I looked around for the right size container to hold a dozen eggs, and decided on my berry bowl. It's navy blue on the outside, so I pulled out my handloomed table runner as a background. One of the considerations for this week was to leave some "white" or negative space in your photo. That's a technique I like quite a bit.
I used my 18-270 Tamron lens for all the shots, and ended up with four I liked. Which one most appeals to you?
Usually when I shoot a half shot, I have the subject on the left-hand side rather than the right-hand side. This wasn't thought through completely, and I think I'd prefer it if it were reversed.
This top down shot might be my favorite.
I decided on a square crop for this one.
And here's one on the left-hand side, but with a different point of view. I have to admit I like taking the time to try a lot of different shots. These are the four I liked best, but I took quite a few more.
