Still life photography allows you to be creative with your lighting and composition in a way that stamps your own identity on the image and how you wanted it designed. The controlled lighting allows you to take full advantage of the object's natural form and texture and this is also emphasised by the use of colour or lack of. Still life can be a demanding subject as it can be subjective and personal to the photographer. Ultimately it provides a perfect platform me to create an image by my own design and not just record what is in front of me. I have also included abstract close ups and patterns.
