An Egg Taught Me About Lighting in Photography

While browsing Life Hacker, I came across this interesting article on how studying an egg came make a person a better photographer. Before you run off to grab an egg and stare at it for countless hours, this is all about lighting.

You're going to need two things for this, an egg(duh) and a small flashlight. Place the egg on one spot and do not move it. Then take five pictures of the egg with the flashlight pointing at different angles. Also, do this in a dark room with little to no light source. This teaches you how to manipulate light and understanding it. As you can see below, the size on the egg looks different in each picture but it was never moved. If you don't understand this concept, you should trying out yourself for better understanding.

By the way, it's my birthday.
