The assignment was to shoot eggs to layout, for a restaurant's new breakfast menu.  The shot must have a clean background, using muted colours that don't detract from the eggs.  We also had to use a clean, non-textured or wooden surface.

 

Incredible%20Edible%20Egg-20190528-X3.jp

 

I used a Godox SK-300 strobe with a large soft box and scrim.  I also used a large black card to direct light from the soft box away from the background.  I finally used a small reflector card to provide additional light from camera right.

 

I used the following settings:

  • 24-70/f2.8 @ 70 mm
  • ISO 64
  • f11
  • 1/125 sec.

Feedback was excellent.  My instructor liked the reflection of the place mat on the bowl.  He also liked the pattern in the place mat.  Finally, he noted that the angle of the eggs in the bowl led the eye down to the egg by the bowl.  I'm slowly learning.

 

Thanks for looking everyone.  :)
