      Why thank you! All my photos.

      I am doing a studio course at the moment. Amazingly the egg shot was the first one I took! Failed to get just egg against the black!

    @AlpacaAddict, Jac & Johanna – Thank you! I hope my photography tutor likes them!

    @Sarah – I need professional lights. I am loving the freezing of motion. The whisk was on full speed in the 3rd shot!

      Yes. First time. I set it up and took some with the hands to get the focus, flash and exposure right, then first time. Amazing really!

      Thanks for your kind comments!

    Gorgeous shots, Helen!! I find a dark background with white, bright crisp colours works really well and love your egg cracking and dusting the madeleine photos. :)

      Thank you! Your photos are always fantastic, so praise from you means a huge amount.

      I am now desperate to buy some studio lights, or at least an off camera flash!
