    My EE's have just started laying, and I want to take a picture , but none of my shots show the eggs true colors. With flash they look washed out, and without flash they appear to dark. My camera is a Canon EOS, if someone has experience, or advice. Thanks in advance.

    expose for the eggs, the white paper will come back to white and you will get details in the eggs

    That is the best for shooting them outside! More detail in the softer light. You can still color correct for the white paper. Or try in photoshop to adjust the color to "cloudy"

    I'm offering to adjust them for you, so just PM me your photo and I'll fix the lighting. [​IMG]

    I thought they wanted to learn how to do it for themselves
