When you are participating in a 365 photo project, there are some days that you will have to face a still life or flat lay prompt. Some photographers love them and some hate them! I know it can feel overwhelming and even a little intimidating. There are many assumptions and questions we have when we see a beautiful still life photo in the gallery created by the talented photographers in our community. You may be thinking some of these things:
Where do you find the light, especially if you work until after dark?
Isn't it expensive to buy props and set-ups?
What if I don't have good natural light at my house?
What if I don't have any space to set something up?
Today I'm going to take you behind the scenes (with help from a few of 365 Picture Today's talented still life photographers). I believe after you see our set-ups, you might be encouraged to try still life photography with more confidence.
