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…
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?
