Still Life Photography

Still life photography is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape and portraiture, gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. A still life doesn’t move, so it is easier for a beginning photographer to spend more time with camera controls. This work is by Olivia Parker who has been involved in still life as an art form for many years. She continually finds ways to stretch the genre to include new and innovative approaches. Hopefully, you find them inspiring.
