Easter Close-up!

Well, it's Easter time this year! Enjoy! I decided to go out and take some photos of nicely painted eggs to share with my friends and this is what turned out.

Placing objects in a line is not always the best thing.

A classic "family" portrait.
And here's my advice:
  • Use various backgrounds for your shoot.
  • Get colorful props
  • If the eggs are too pale mind the light because you might if it's too strong you'll get harsh shadows and burnt areas.
  • Work for the bokeh by getting close to the object, open the aperture wider (f4-f5.6 should do in most cases if you're close enough).
  • You can shoot with your favourite portrait lens (I did not need a macro lens or a vario for any of these).
  • Get a friend to take photos with you so you can have more fun.
Well, I guess this about covers it. For more questions and advice send me a message via the comment box below.

All the best and a happy Easter,
