For Eggsample: My actual breakfast

I did my usual photo doodles this morning. You know how you aimlessly scribble your pen on a piece of paper until something sensible materializes? I do the same thing only with pictures. And this morning, I decided to do it with eggs as I prepare my breakfast. I shoot and shoot until I think I have enough shots to work with and after I’m done with my food, cold from minutes of taking pictures before actually eating it, I uploaded the pictures in Photoshop and dawdled around until I feel satisfied with the outcome. I don’t really have any particular theme or effect, it’s just when I have achieved what I think works at the moment, then I stop. Save. Upload.

I told myself to stop this trend. Shooting away and photoshopping photos.  I bet you in the analog era, photographers put more thought into composing photos while taking them, not in the dark room. 

Now, it’s time to eat.

  1. That middle photo, I’m sure, looks good even without the processing. I don’t have Photoshop so when I take a picture, I look for good lighting and try very hard to keep my hands steady. Most of the time I fail, haha. Thank god for digital cameras. 🙂

    • Thank you! 🙂 But thanks and at the same time to digital cameras. It’s a gift and a curse, I guess. i embrace it as much as I loathe it. And yes, key elements to a good shot, good lighting and steady hands, most especially if you don’t have a fast lens (like mine). But I always keep in mind to stay as sharp and as well illuminated (in desired areas) as possible. Usually, I post process to get a vintage look or to intensify the mood.

      congrats on being freshly pressed. I love reading all the comments to your now-famous post. 🙂
