30 Stunning Examples of Still Life Photography

By on Photography

Ever since the inception of photography itself, still life photography has been in vogue. And with the advancement of modern-day cameras, you can now have greater control over lighting, mood and composition of your photographs, thereby creating amazing still-life photography masterpieces.

Still-life photography as a form of art takes a great deal of learning and experience. You need to master the art of carefully selecting objects, the lighting and dozens of other variants.

However, due to the inanimate nature of the objects, you have plenty of time to get the perfect light and create the most aesthetically pleasing composition. Still life photography does require some patience but it’s a wonderful way to master light and composition, and best of all, it doesn’t require tons of expensive equipment.

Keep in mind that when it comes your subject, your background will play a crucial role. You can use the natural background that the subject is already on or you can help yourself by making use of paper, cardboard or fabric you have laying around. Keep the background simple so it doesn’t distract from the subject of your photo.

You will also want to make use of natural light or make your own softbox to improve your lighting conditions. After that, it’s only a matter of playing with the subject arrangement to create an interesting scene.

Once you master this form of art, you can go on to produce other designs such as posters, calendars, artistic prints, and more. Technical terminology aside, we have put together a gallery of 30 still-life photography samples, for you to appreciate. Enjoy!
