The Egg

Every month over at DEDPXL.com there's a new photo assignment for the readers. The idea is to get you out shooting and making new work. I try to participate when I can. The latest assignment was 'The Egg' was a lot deceptively simple - make a photo of an egg. That's it. No other rules.

These assignments are great practice and good to get your mind working.

Everyone should hop on over to DEDPXL and check out next month's assignment - it's going to have an AWESOME prize.
