Here we create an “Instant Omelet” with a air rifle and an unfertilized chicken embryo…


(Straight Out Of Camera)




Nikon D810
Nikon 105mm f/2.8
400 ISO


  • Raised contrast, shadows and whites
  • Lowered exposure, highlights and blacks
  • Raised clarity, vibrance and saturation




Opened in Photoshop and expanded the canvas, and made a white layer for the base…


Made a levels adjustment to help get the clear parts of the egg closer to the white background…

Masked out any unwanted egg stuff…

Then cloned out the eggshell chunks I didn’t like…


Added a subtle vignette…


Then tried a less subtle vignette, but I ended up liking no vignette better.


Final Thoughts

Shooting an egg isn’t as fun as you’d think…

Its messy, and after shooting 24 eggs I found it to be problematic to get a good shot.
