Shooting Still Life

Somehow my blog is getting neglected these days, but rest assured everyone that I have not stopped creating images. I’ve just been having a hard time juggling work and school.

peppersSchool is going really well though. I’m really glad I jumped into the program. I feel that I have a much better understanding of how to create a better and stronger photograph. School has made me more aware of the most important element of photography. Light. We’ve played around with flood lights in the studio last week and it’s been fun. We’ve shot portraits, still life and everything else in between. It’s been such an amazing learning experience so far, and I cannot wait to learn more…

applesBoth images above were shot at the studio, with seamless background and controlled lighting. It’s crazy how much an uncluttered background helps put the focus of an image to where it should be. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to keep going, and to hopefully come out a much better, more conscious photographer.

    • Thank you. I have to say, taking the class has been one of the best decisions I’ve made since I started getting serious with photography.
