Today in class we learned about manipulating basic lighting on an egg as our subject. This was a great lesson as it stressed the importance of light upon a subject and how controlling that lighting drastically alters the photograph. One of the best photos me and my group shot was the photograph above, I love this picture because of the drama the light creates with the egg. The egg is placed in a way that the light looks like a spotlight that you see in plays; this then casts half tones on the egg making a beautiful dark shadow behind the egg. The high level of contrast this photograph depicts is why I adore it so much.
