Assignment : STILL LIFE
This Genre in photography has faded from popularity over time, nonetheless there is still a lot of great work that can be created within this area and it is one we are about to explore.
One of the main advantages is that this type of photography can be done at home with daylight, reading lamps and objects collected from your immediate environment.
Using as many or as few light sources as you wish, create an atmospheric still life, focusing on items that relate to your own theme. Experiment with the arrangement of every element of the composition, from the objects themselves to the background and foreground. Control the lighting and shade so that no manipulation is needed later. Try various settings on your camera.
