I am at home this week, taking care of chores around the house and doing painting whenever I can. This was an egg that I had for breakfast and painted it reflecting on a glass surface.

Size: 4 x 6 inches (I think)
Time: 1 hour.

You are just an endless source of subjects. Good reflections and gloss on the egg shells.

Thanks Judy... Smile

My problem is how to take good photographs. I feel that my paintings are better than what they appear in these photograph. The photos come out with darker values and strong contrast and I feel it ruins what I am trying to show. Does anyone have any tips/links on taking good photographs of the paintings (without a lot of fuss).

Thanks

F Tariq

Hi Faisal
I like the eggs, especially the way you have captured the soft edges of the reflections.
I photograph my paintings outdoors, with a colour wheel in the photo (off to the side of the painting) so I can compare the finished colours and values of the result. Then I go to Photoshop to tweak the saturation and colour slightly. I still have a lot to learn about photographing though.

Great idea about the color wheel. I'll have to keep that in mind.

Hi Alan,

I like the idea of the color wheel. Elegant... Smile, I will do that myself.

Thanks

Faisal
