Group Info

What do you do when it’s raining outside or it’s so cold that you can barely tolerate it? Put away your camera till it warms up? What about shoot some of those inanimate objects lying around your house? An example of the photos found in this group are: dolls, toys, figurines, food, cake, drinks, coffee, fruits, vegetables, books, paper, jewelry, rocks, shells, cut floral arrangements, etc.

What will be accepted - Arranged objects with emphasis on composition and lighting, macros of inanimate objects are ok.

What will not be accepted - Portraits, pets, landscape, flower macros (unless it is a cut floral arrangement), abstracts, photo manipulations, any sort of movement or motion, etc. Anything that is moving or growing when the photograph was taken is not considered still life.

i would like to apologize to everyone who followed and contributed to this group. i was a terrible founder and couldn't take the responsibility of heading a group. if anyone is interested, i would be happy to step down and let someone else take over the group as founder. otherwise, unfortunately, i'll have to delete the group.

Welcome to Photo-Inanimate!

Have you ever felt the urge to take a photo, then looked outside and realized it was raining? Don't be discouraged, there are plenty of beautiful things to take pictures of in your very house! Dolls, toys, anything could be the subject of a beautiful photo!

These are rules, pay attention to them!

:bulletred: You may submit up to FOUR (4) photos per week.
:bulletred: Subject must be an inanimate object.
:bulletred: Dead animals/insects/people are not allowed. Things such as skulls and bones will be looked at on a case by case basis.

:bulletred: Please do not submit more than one photo from a shoot at a time.
