One of the most difficult studio lighting assignments in art school involved an egg.

The background and table surface had to be white. The egg was placed on the table and it was lit with only one light source. We used 4x5 cameras.

We had to print a black and white photo such that the egg shape remain distinct and did not 'bleed' into the white of the white boards or into any shadow.

I think it took me about 4 hours to get it right.

Absolutely, and what a beauty! I used to be scared of the 'stuff' that comes with eggs from our neighbours. Now I love the 'stuff' because it means I know where the eggs came from, how happy the girls are that laid them, how much they like spinach (!) and how fresh they are.

Yum! x
