In my last blog post I mentioned using a piece of PVC pipe for an egg stand. Well, I did eventually do that, and it worked well.
It was as simple as a few minutes with the coping saw and the Dremel, and I had a nice little white stand to put finished eggs on to take photos of.
This looks much better than the poorly constructed cardboard tube stand you may have seen in the original pirate egg photo.
(Now the next challenge will be finding the optimal way to photograph white eggs on a white background.)
