|Wobbly Easter Eggs, April 2011. for sale here|
I won't make it larger because the intensity gives me a headache. It took a lot of tweaking in Photoshop to let it read as vivid but not blinding. Just for fun, I took the desaturation a little further, looking for a slightly faded feel to the photo:
I sort of liked that, so I de-saturated it just a little more:
The last shot is really of eggs from my neighbor's chickens. I put out a call on Facebook looking for bird eggs, since I wanted to do a companion photo to the plastic eggs. This one is kind of cool, not sure yet whether I like it. The smooth eggs on the smooth background are a little bland for my taste. (Maybe I should add salt? Sorry, can't resist a bad joke.) I'd still like to find a variety of sizes and colors and maybe some speckled ones. Anybody have an egg collection I could borrow? Hey, I wonder if they sell quail eggs at the mainland grocery store...
Still working on my booth for the Big Thaw craft fair. Holy cow, this is a lot of work! I have new respect for people who do this regularly. I finally picked up my table from the Boy Scouts' Christmas tree sale lot, where it has been languishing for three months, and am going to mark off a 5x8 booth with masking tape on the living room floor and test the set-up. Won't my family love that!
