A Simple King

Today's project (Thursday 3/10): Make a photograph of a beautiful simple shape, such as an egg, today. Utilize lighting and focus to make it sing.

A simple subject, yet I didn't find it so simple. For some reason, this just felt like it would be hard to do. I didn't know what to use, I didn't know what kind of lighting I'd need. Not so simple...

I felt I had to use something small. I got my King from my chess set and decided to use that in the natural sunlight. I didn't have a particular background that would compliment the King, so I placed it on the floor. I also wanted to incorporate it's shadow in the shot.

The King was not so simple.
