The fine art genre of still life photography requires photographers to take many aspects into account in order to capture the perfect, minimalist image. Take a look at these still life photographers you should know.
Still life photography is a type of fine art photography in which the photographers focus more on creating an image rather than capturing the moment.
The genre of photography is used to depict inanimate objects, often times resulting in various subjects clustered together in minimalistic ways. Common objects that are used in still life photography include vases, plants, fruits, clothing, and shells — amongst others.
As a still life photographer you have complete freedom in arranging the subjects used as you see fit. It is, in fact, important to understand that much emphasis and attention to detail should be placed towards the arrangement of the objects, the lighting and the perspectives. These categories can truly make or break your image, and have an impact on the minimalism you are portraying.
