Experimenting with still life as part of Beyond Beyond. Here are some random thoughts on the process:
I find still life hard.
I think I find it hard because I am not a natural 'styler' of things.
I think my 'style' can be summed up as 'a bunch of random stuff I like'.
OK, I'm going to talk that up as 'eclectic'. ;)
For this exercise I applied my 'eclectic' approach, walked round my house and picked up some stuff I liked the look of, found the best light I could (no mean feat in this gloomy, grey January we're having) and took photos from all angles, then picked the one I liked the best. This often seems to be the 'from above' shot.
I'm sure there must a better way to approach still life.
A little more thought and planning, I'm guessing.
Do you do still life photography? How do you approach it? All advice gratefully received.
Happy Friday to you, have a lovely weekend. :)
