Project 52 Assignment Three is Posted

Assignment Three is a simple still life shot.

“First – there is a difference between product shots and still life. Product shots show, well, products – tech or cooking utensils or cameras. A still life can be made up of items that are not for sale, but instead are used to project an idea, thought, or feeling.

Still life can be an exploration of color and contrast and texture and light… always light. It is a quiet, reflective kind of photography that lets you work a shot over and over – without a whining or tiring subject.”
