This week ^Kaz-D and myself are bringing you an overview of the Photography Galleries on deviantART. This won't replace the full weeks planned by the specific community volunteers for specific galleries - but instead it will help to give you a mini introduction into what's out there.

Still Life

Still life showcases studio-style photography that features inanimate objects.

Photographing Still Life - Tips

:bulletpink: Keep the background simple! Keep it clutter and crease free, these will only detract from the final image. You can always add extra textures such as scarves if needed.
:bulletpink: Take your time. Make sure the composition works - if it doesn't look quite right, keep tweaking until you're happy with the layout of the shot.
:bulletpink: Lighting is an important factor. Depending on the light available, you may need to use a tripod if using a longer shutter speed. Shooting in natural light, such as near a window during the day, also really helps give the shot a softer touch.
:bulletpink: Varying the focus can make for some interesting shots too. A shallow depth of field can give a soft effect whilst a wider DOF will allow everything to stay in focus.
