Faberge Egg

Uploaded: February 28, 2011

Description

I made my sphere from a cropped stained glass window, increased the contrast negative RGB blend. I then shaped it into an egg-like shape, borrowed a Faberge egg stand photo from cyber land, and fit the egg. I used a digital flowered backdrop for portraits and used the craquelure filture for texture. I used another layer of backdrop for the lighting effect at 79%. I used trim from the wall of another photo for the base under the stand, burned shadows under. Lastly I framed it and used the same texture/flower layer. I also burned a shadow on left side of egg to match the lighting effect.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
