Still life photography is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition.
Still life photography is a demanding art, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with compositional skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. Knowing where to look for propping and surfaces also is a required skill.
Still life photos aren’t usually about the objects they showcase, but rather about the way these objects are arranged and organized within the frame. Still life photography can be quite amazing because of the photographer’s ability to turn an ordinary object into a beautiful photograph.
The composition, lighting, and colors can serve as excellent sources of design inspiration. In this post, we have tried to bring out some of the beautiful and awesome still life photography shots that would probably inspire you in your design projects. Scroll down and get inspired!
