Under Pressure

Ok, so I'm going to give the NF-SOOC (Nifty Fifty Straight Out of Camera) September 2020 challenge a go. Lets see if I can handle the pressure.
This is really cool, even though I'm not quite sure what it is!

How cool is that?

Cracked egg! That was my guess! How did you get it lit up like that?

And did you get any other nifty fifty shots in September???

@shesnapped Hi Ashley! Thank you for dropping in. I have a very small but high-intensity LED light hidden and positioned directly behind it (almost touching). I did it on the kitchen table where there was enough ambient light from the living room to see what I was doing, much brighter than it would seem in the picture. That, combined with the very bright light behind the egg, allowed me to drop the exposure quite a bit making it seem like the photo was taken practically in the dark and you can't see the incredibly messy kitchen - which trust me, is there. LOL. I didn't do very well with the challenge, I think I made 6 or so nifty-fifty shots which I haven't posted. My problem is that I feel like any photo I let anyone else see has to be, in my opinion, as good as or better...and ideally, better...than anything I've posted before to date. And when I feel it isn't, I use that as excuse not to post. Certainly sometimes I don't get around to shooting or posting because of being busy, but that's not always the real reason. All of us are busy so its not a good reason either. Ultimately, I'm too critical of my photos to a fault. Its a cop-out mental block that I use as a crutch to not post and I've been too lazy to persist through it. I'd like to get past it. I will check Lightroom to see if I saved any of the nifty-fifty shots and if so, will try to get past this negative thinking and post them for what they are. All that to say, I very much appreciate you asking the question which - without you even really knowing - translates into a nudge for me.

@dbj_365 That’s an awesome response, particularly that whole evaluation of your posting criteria! Tag me when you post them!!
