Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:FinePix AV130

I havent posted anything for a while but heres what iv been working on. The penguin book competition “one flew over the cuckoos nest”. The idea was to create/ print a nest made of barbed wire with eggs nestled inside. The harshness and fragmented nest i wanted to contrast with the small round eggs (one of which will just be a shell). Still needs a lot of work but heres the basic idea.
I also spenta long time actually trying to make a barbed wire birds nest- a lot harder than it sounds without gloves but it was something different.
