Alright, time for you to create a shot with another Still Life challenge. The theme this time is Minimalism. We’ve already had a minimalist landscape challenge, so you should have had some practice with the concept. This time instead of finding something minimalist, you get to setup the shot with your subject of choice.
In keeping with the challenge, I’ll keep this post to a minimum with just a few reminders about still life photography.
First, lighting matters. Many great still life photos use ordinary subjects, but dramatic lighting.
Second, you setup the shot – you decide on the placement of the objects.
Next, pay close attention to your aperture to get the right depth of field for what you envision.
And one more – background. For this week find a plain background. It doesn’t have to be black or white, just simple.
As always, please post/share a photo you take THIS WEEK. We love your old photos, but not for the challenge. The point of the PhotoChallenges is for you to set out to create a new photo, to share with us all this week. Share them with us all at our Google+ Community, Facebook Group, and/or our Flickr Group.
