The first image, my favorite, was shot with the white balance on my camera set to Tungsten. I had the egg in my homemade light box. The bulbs in the lamps are nothing special, just hardware store light bulbs. I had one of the lamps turned away, so the majority of the light source came from one light only. I had a cable release attached to the camera, which was mounted on a tripod.
Shutter speed: 1/6, f/16, ISO 200, focal length 91 mm
This one below has the white balance set to auto. This one is handheld, so the focus isn't as sharp. At this point, I had both lights turned toward it (hence, the double shadows). All I have to say about the color is UGH.
This one below is shot with the white balance set to fluorescent. There is a big fluorescent light in my basement (where my light box is) hanging above and just behind where the camera and I were standing. Another UGH on the color scale.
Lesson learned? White balance matters, and maybe I should invest in a gray card...
