Life Stilled

When I think of still-life in photography I often think of being in the studio and carefully arranging a group of objects. Due to the photographer being expected to carefully control the lighting and composition of the subjects, still-life photography is often considered demanding.

Historically in the world of art, subject matter for still-life often would center around fruit, flowers, or other inanimate and commonplace subjects. The genre of still-life has been enjoyed for centuries.

In the field, I often photograph what I choose to call ‘Life Stilled.’

Not really landscapes, abstracts, or macro images, and not truly still-life images, ‘Life Stilled” is a little slice of life’s objects…stilled; photographed just as I find them and not in the studio.

With little or no control of arrangement or lighting, the challenge for making the image shifts  to that of vision.

As I explore and wander in Rural Tennessee, I often keep my eyes open for images to add to my growing ‘Life Stilled’ collection.
