Breaking Eggs

I received 2nd place with this entry into the Victoria Camera Club October Competition which was entitle “What’s Cracking?”.


How I did it:

  • White background
  • Black tile for the floor
  • Used a work light for the lighting
  • Camera: 7D
  • Canon 50mm f/1.8
  • Yongnuo Wireless shutter release

I broke the egg, stepped on the remote to take the pics as I didn’t have a free hand and prayed.

A total of about 18 eggs were used to make this photo but I think it was well worth it (and not to mention about 200 photos to sort through).
