This week we will be practicing still life skills. Still life photography focuses on inanimate subjects - usually with an emphasis on the arrangement of the item(s) you are photographing as well as the lighting and framing of the subject. This sort of photography is great to practice composition and lighting and can absolutely help us all onto the road to becoming better photographers.
Today, think about the angle you want to best showcase the subject you want to capture. This beautiful butterfly is hanging on a wall and I was sitting below it. The natural light pouring in from the window was lovely so I easily turned around, looked up with my camera, and voila, a lovely still life photo.
