Eggs anyone?

Found this egg holder in a small craft shop when we were out in North Northumberland the other day so had a play with it.  I always like to see how folks set up their shots so I've included a couple here.  Nothing fancy - a home-made light box and a velvet dress (still with sequins on!) from a charity shop and cut up.  LR templates.  Eggs still to be eaten!

Still life and set-up

Week 5 of Kim's Bestill52 class was all about side light exploration.  This was set up next to a north facing window with a white board (propped up on the chair) reflecting the light.  The backdrop was a charity shop scarf, the boards were from B and Q (free as they were just packaging!) and the blue bowl was found at TKMax.  Flowers out of the garden but have no idea what they are!  Shot with the 50mm lens and edited in LR and Elements.

Found in Scotland

Can't believe how long it is since I posted!  I blame FB and IG not to mention all the interesting things on Pinterest!  I originally started this blog - many years ago - in order to post about textiles which I loved doing at the time after completing the C and G courses.  And then along came photography with my little point and shoot, which developed into a bit of a hobby and then a real interest thanks to input from Kim Klassen's courses and friends at the local camera club.  So textiles have taken a back seat for the moment.  More later!
