One of the easiest (and one of my favorite) styles of photography is still life. It’s as easy as pointing and shooting, but the beauty comes in the composition.
You know how sometimes you take a photo of something of yours that you adore, like a Beanie Baby (I’m such a ’90s kid) or your trendy bracelets, but your photo just doesn’t turn out? Did you use a cell phone? If so, that the problem. Cell phones don’t accurately capture what we see before us. I’ve found that cell phones take color away.
Now I don’t have tips to really show how to make the photos you take pop outside of messing with the levels, contrast, and vibrance in Photoshop, but I do have some examples of photos from my latest photography assignment for my class.
Again, still life is one of the easiest and one of my favorite genres of photography. You can manipulate your subjects how you want and take as many photos as you want without any stress. It’s one of the most relaxing ways to photograph.
Take your hand at it. You can try with your phone or even a DSLR camera. It’s a good starting place (along with landscape images!). Thanks for reading!
