I’ve learned that best way to become a good still life photographer is to study the masters, techniques of taking still life photography in a studio, especially how to use lighting and how to choose and arrange objects. As well, for every still life image, begin with a theme and idea. Before using your camera, answer the question: What am I going to tell the viewer with my image? Next, sketch out the arrangement in a notebook or on a sketchpad. You can also pre-visualize the shot or work out an arrangement in the studio. I Try to take less than 5 photographs from different perspectives. A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it.” I believe that the best photographers are able to arrange and capture still life objects as art.
