If you have recently bought a good camera and you’re willing to loose yourself into the photography world you might want to try still life photography. Still life photography implies full control over the image during the process of creating it. The Photographer controls composition, lighting and the general mood of the photo that is about to be made. It provides endless possibilities to photographers to express their creativity.
Tip number one that you might have in mind before you start with this style of photography is that you want to have everything well planned before you start. Because you have complete charge over the creative process the better you plan all the details the better photo you’ll end up with, for sure. The most important thing is lighting, so you want to pay a great deal of attention to it.
If you’re using natural light we don’t need to tell you that planning the time of the photoshoot is crucial. Also, pay attention to a background; for example, if you want your main subject to stand out use one color background. And maybe the best tip ever is – just do it. Once you start with it, you will find out all the beauty and necessity of the great still life photo taking.
