"Make a monochromoe [sic] photograph today. Either use a single color subject/background or make it monochrome in post." I've been on a black and white kick lately. But, of course, when the monochrome assignment comes up, I just can't let it be. I get inspired by the "Moments in White" group they featured on Flickr Blogs and decide to go that route. I pull some eggs out of the fridge and grab my hard boiled egg slicer, which is white. I decide not to drag a large table over to the window to take advantage of the natural light and shoot on the floor instead. I open the blinds and the light is too harsh, so I cover it over with thin white plastic to diffuse the light a bit. Then I stack up some books and drape a white sweater over them to create a backdrop of sorts. I start arranging the eggs and love the way everything looks through the viewfinder, except the shadows. I hunt down two different textures of white paper to use to reflect the light. Set the camera on timer so I can use both hands with the paper. Rearrange the eggs several times to try to get the best composition. Triumphant, I take my memory card to the computer and upload the photos into Lightroom. It is at this point, dear reader, that I discover a critical point to this assignment. Eggs must be perfectly dry when you photograph them. Otherwise, you have unsightly condensation that just looks hideous in the photo. Also, the egg slicer has some invisible to the naked eye rust around a groove which shows up in a horrifyingly obvious way in the photo. So I pull my memory card and head back to the floor to give it another go. Ditch the egg slicer. Lovingly dry each egg with a dish towel. Snap a few shots and realize that with the new composition, the camera needs to be at a slightly higher angle. Go fetch more books to prop it up. After a few more photos, it becomes evident that the black dish towel used to dry the eggs is not lint free so I then spend twenty minutes polishing each egg to get rid of the black flecks. During this time, the sun shifts, which requires moving the entire set up two feet to the right, knocking over both stacks of books and rearranging the "backdrop". It is at this time that I notice the eggs are starting to get condensation on them again. Hurridly snap four photos and get them back into Lightroom. Yep. It's a picture of eggs. That's what that is alright. Just look at them in all their eggy glory. Tomorrow I'm shooting in black and white.

just to the west of our house, across The Tracks, the other side lives with a pretty spectacular mountain view. 2010/02/21: Backgrounds are tricky. They can make a subject stand out or distract from it. Make a photo with a good background today. #ds98
