Still Life photography is a very creative process that requires all your skills and control over every detail of the scene.
As opposed to taking snapshots spontaneously, it opens up many opportunities and enables the photographer to have full control over the outcome of the picture. Since most of the time it is done indoors, both the composition and lighting can be changed any time, which provides a good opportunity to experiment and learn about the camera settings.
Perhaps the most important aspect of still life photography is having a concept behind the picture; a certain idea that the photographer expresses through the photograph.
There are endless possibilities: still life may be made up of various objects put together, a detail of a room, or just one item with an interesting background. The key is uniting the scene in a harmonious and engaging manner to make an impact on the viewer.
