The Ugly Egg

Talk about the Ugly Duckling? Here’s the prototype, surely the ugliest egg in the world!

The Ugly Egg

I photographed the egg over a saucepan, with the Fujifilm X-T4, and a Fujinon 16-80mm f/4 lens.

F=80mm, f/8, Q 1/30th sec, on ISO 3200.

Easy enough for me, I chose f/8 to get a decent depth of field for the close-up, but because the light was low at the time, I chose a slow shutter speed, and a high ISO. Neither of these extremes are a problem to the X-T4, – its in-body image stabilisation, lens stabilisation, and fantastic sensor make slow shutter speeds and high ISO’s as easy as boiling an egg.

Not so easy for the hen though! Passing this ugly spheroid must have brought screams of pain. The egg, however, was delicious!
