Still Life


Still Life. This is my first real attempt in shooting a still life photograph. Still life photography is the art of putting inanimate objects together in an artificial setting or purposefully arranging related objects together, or at least that is how I understood it. I admit, this one was difficult. Lighting was important to create a good effect and I had a really hard time. I wish I had a studio (wishful thinking). It took me more than an hour to shoot this one (Whew!). I shot this in a very dark room and used only one light source. I tried backlighting it to minimize the glare, but apparently was quite unsuccessful. I think I shall practice shooting some more.

It's underexposed pero nice try. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it once you practice more.

hi guys thanks for your comments! Really encouraging!:D my main problem here is lighting.

Anyway, babette, about food, i dont really know mch about it. But I think what's important really is the lighting. You really have to have good light to make the food appear delicious. But what i've learned in making bottled colas look refreshing is that photographers spray the bottle with glycerin mixed with water to make it appear as if the bottle is "sweaty" (pardon the term) making it appear cold. I will try shooting that sometime.
