Getting back to basics – exploring styles

I have spent the last few months concentrating on food and cocktails and such on this blog, and while that has been fantastic, I think it’ time to mix things up a bit for this month. So I am going to get back to some basics and look at some different genres and styles within still life photography…

Exploring Ephemera…

ephemera (noun)
1.things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time, “there were papers, letters, old boxes—all sorts of ephemera”
2. collectable items that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity, “Mickey Mouse ephemera”

The art of still life and styling starts long before we press that shutter button…What do you enjoy the most; the gather, the shoot or the edit? I love a good gather, I even have a special basket I use to collect all the bits and pieces, I want for my image. I find it so relaxing……almost zen type meditation putting it all together, this week we are going to look for some slightly more unusual and personal stuff…ENJOY

I am sure a few of you may connect with this style of Still Life, and it does NOT have to be old stuff either, got a hobby? Use it! Stamps, coins, sewing, gardening, cooking,m sewing…need I go on?
