We finished up our Shutterbugdeb‘s fruit arrangement. This was a very nice example of a very traditional fruit still life. The glass bowl added another element to the shot, but because it was clear, it didn’t take away from the natural beauty of it. Well done everyone!
Still Life: Flowers is our newest assignment. Flowers can seem overdone when it comes to photography, but yet their beauty draws us to photograph them, and it’s a challenge to do it well. This week, your challenge is to photograph a flower still life. Remember, as a still life, this is not a shot of a blooming garden. You need to consider the design and placement of your subject, your lighting, and your composition. Check the first post in the thread for some helpful information about what a still life is. As always, a quick reminder of the rules. First, your photo must have been taken between 26 January – 9 February 2011. Second, your post must include the words “Still Life: Flowers” to show your permission for it to count in the contest, and the date the photo was taken in order to show that it is a valid entry. Finally, your EXIF should be intact, and it’s useful if you can include some of the main points, such as camera, ISO, aperture, lens, shutter speed, etc. See the thread for the full rules. Next week’s assignment will be The Weather Outside. Show us what the Mother Nature is doing in your neck of the woods. Good luck everyone!
