  Taking Good Still Life Camera Shots  

For some of us, photography is more than just snapping some pictures once in a while. It is something that we enjoy doing and a way of expressing ourselves. Like with most types of art forms, the best way to improve is to learn and then practice, repeatedly. Though it is nice to have live subjects with which to practice our photography, working with still-life can be a learning process all its own, and can be a great way to work with different effects. Also, with still-life, you have a variety of different subjects that you can work with; limited only by your imagination and what you have available.

Still-life photography is a lot more difficult than many people realize. When you photograph people or animals it is much easier to capture a mood than when you are photographing inanimate objects. The challenge of creating a mood with still-life photography is what can make it so exciting, though. By working with such things as light, shadow, focus, and different backgrounds, you can take one still-life subject and elicit completely different types of moods. This is your objective; to use inanimate objects to inspire emotion in the viewer.

To practice your still-life photography, you want to take a day when you can be undisturbed for a period of time. Find a spot that you can turn into a studio for a while, or if you really do have a studio, all the better. Think of various everyday objects that you can photograph, such as fruit, books, or small pieces of pottery. Start with one thing, because you�re going to want to practice photographing it in different ways to try to create different moods. Then, start practicing. Choose a feeling that you want to create and start using lights and backgrounds to create that mood. This is a wonderful way to exercise your creativity and imagination.

Think of your still-life photography as telling a story. For instance, you can put some old books between two bookends and then place a brightly illustrated child�s book open in front of them. By sharpening the focus on the old books and blurring it slightly on the child�s book, you are portraying the importance of learning from past generations. By doing the opposite you are encouraging people to think of how life goes on, and how the old has to make way for the new. Open your mind to the ways that you can speak to others through your still-life photography and you should be happy with the results.
