Egg Portfolio !!!



When Bee & Jai announced about the Click event and this month's theme Eggs. I started visualizing eggs in every form and shape and how to capture their beauty. These snaps are my sincere efforts to bring out the very best snaps captured under the naked sun!

Egg-centric is the right word for this event post as you see I was revolving round the eggs for quiet a some time to capture those beauties!

Being a budding photographer and photoshop learner, here are my contributions for this event. I used sunny side egg magnet as props along with Raw Eggs to enhance the beauty of egg in all the photos, I hope this qualifies my entry.

First snaps under the sun, here I used gold dusted paper in the background to capture the colorful reflection of the eggs.


Cooling Buddies!



Same photo as above but I flipped the image and used a different shade,
also note the original color of egg shells peels are captured here!



Another photoshop trick to blur the background image and highlight the main object


I wanted to capture the dew drops formed on a cold egg
clicked at room temperature ~
