:lightbulb: What is still life?

It is inanimate THINGS you have ARRANGED in a special way. The main thing is that you have done a setup and portrayed that in your medium. No hands are allowed. A good example of still life is cook book photos.

:lightbulb: What is NOT still life?

People, a park, houses, plants still attached to the ground, trees and so on.

My hope is to collect some really great still life deviations in this group and of course, everybody is welcome no matter if you're beginner or pro. :woohoo:

:heart:We accept art from these categories:
:bulletblack: Photography > still life > cut flowers and plant arrangement
:bulletblack: Photography > still life > dolls and figures
:bulletblack: Photography > still life > food and drink
:bulletblack: Photography > still life > other
:bulletblack: Photography > Commercial photography > products

:bulletblack: Traditional art > drawings > still life
:bulletblack: Traditional art > paintings > still life

:bulletblack: Digital art > paintings & airbrushing > still life
:bulletblack: Digital art > drawings > still life
:bulletblack: Digital art > 3-Dimensional art > Objects
:bulletblack: Digital art > Vector > Objects

We accept, depending on subject, from Resources & Stock:
:bulletblack: Resources & Stock images > Stock images > Food

so as you have noticed this group hasn't gotten much love from me at all for a very long time. I am therefore wondering if someone would like to take over?

If no one steps up to the plate I will have to figure out what to do with the group, if it should be shut down or if I can find a way to still be on top of this group and let it live.

Lots of love,

How to add a picture ? :(
petrova Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist
You can do it in two ways.

1. You can go to the deviation you want to send in and in the right colum there's a button that says "add to a group", click there and then search for still-life-heART and choose the right category in the drop down menu and send in.

2. Go to the gallery you want to send in to here on still-life-heART and above the deviations a bit to the right is a button with "submit to this folder" and then follow the same steps as above.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
