"Egg's-cursion" to the beach

I had fun shooting this idea. For better or worse, it's given me quite a few ideas for spinoffs...:lol:

(
dilorenzo, I liked your formatting of the EXIF info, so I'm copying it! I hope you don't mind.)
Camera: Canon 40D
Lens: EF-S 17-85 @ 61mm
Av: f/10
Tv: 1/160 second
ISO: 100
Exposure: Manual
Flash: Dual off-camera (580EXII as master and 580EX as slave), both manually set
Additional info: Camera was on a tripod, and sadly, the egg didn't quite make it to the beach after the photo....

Arrgghh! Goofy! A dragon!

OK, I decided to play along for whatever reason...my rebellious 1D3, sporting a pirate cap from, well, a trip to Disnelyland a few years ago, spots a dragon woven into a Chinese silk gown that I picked up in Asia a few years ago, and this is the sad result.

Great choice, Flo. Ed, those bobbleheads were cool! Nice lighting & composition, and I loved the 'V' too!

Flo, I'm not a scrapbooker at all, but when I was wandering around the local craft store the other day, I saw some of their scrapbooking decorations and got some ideas. I posted my original idea for this theme (the breakup) in a new thread in the still life/experimental forum:
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=651053
I may add more to it later. I have lots of ideas brewing for the egg-cellent adventures...

This was a fun challenge! Congrats, Ed and to all the others who posted! Looking forward to the next round...

Thank you Gail! All the entries were creative and made me laugh. Allen's "Chuckie" did look creepy and had a life all it's own...I'll have one up shortly.


My original idea was to have a bubble gum bubble on the top of the hat (it's one of the things basesball players do: sneak up on an unsuspecting player and put a wad of blown bubble on a guy and then every other player gets a good laugh. The guy has no idea) but I didn't want to risk getting gum stuck on the bobblehead and I couln't find a ballon small enough perspective wise. I took a pic of my wife making the "rabitt ears" made it wider and downsized it to the right proportion then taped it to back of Hawk's head. I lit the whole thing from above front with a black BG. On the processing I muted the colors to match the hand to the face tones and used a "tonal contrast"' filter to exagerate the features and make it look like a caricature.

Thanks again:D:D

Congratulations Ed! Sounds like you went through quite a bit of set up. I must admit I didn't make quite the effort as you but I did get lunch out of the deal! :-)

Thanks, Flo. This was a fun one.
