I've never been a big fan of still life photography, I rather photograph people, landscapes, and subjects that evoke feelings. Many of the still life photos that I've seen left me cold.
I find that still life photography is more demanding as you must form and create a scene that is visually pleasing, we are essentially MAKING the photo, not documenting a moment of time. And believe it not, still life is also a part of wedding photography.
This first photograph is an older photo that I have shared in my blog before. However, I want to share it again for any new viewers.
The ring was placed in the bible to create the heart shape. I especially like what we found inside the heart.
Occasionally we will use the brides bouquet to show off the rings. Not all flowers will hold the rings in a way that will best show off their beauty. This bouquet worked beautifully.
This last photo (above) was my attempt at something new and not work related - it's the photo taken especially with this current challenge in mind. Music and photography are stables of my life.
While still life photography isn't my favorite form of photography it's a type of photography that I need and want to challenge myself.
