Hello ColorOSians ,


20201104_083317_0000.png


     In this article I’m going to share some still life photography techniques . Before beginning with the techniques I would like to discuss about what still life photography is ? It is an important and foundation of all the different photography as it includes the inanimate common place objects . It is wide range of photography including from boring art of fruit bowl to the creative digital creations we see all around .

The main aspect of still life photography is the composition . How you arrange different subjects of your photography can give you a zero level to a great picture . All you need is lots of practice to get good pictures . So not dragging much I’ll be starting with some techniques to get good still life photographs .

1 Use a tripod : the best way to capture a still life picture is by using a tripod stand . It helps in giving accurate , sharp and high definition objects without blurry images . It is more needed when you have shaky hands while clicking pictures . Also there are different types of tripods available in the market . But you don’t need to take the expensive one . A cheap one also works good for the purpose . Also it is upto one’s own wish to take a smaller tripod or a full size tripod , both being equally comfortable in use .

2 Use indirect natural light : using indirect sunlight or natural light is an ideal option for clicking best pictures because it will result in soft and even lighting which is a perfect requirement for still photography . But one has to make sure that the light is indirect because direct light has high power and is very harsh . To get indirect light , you can either use the light coming from window , it gives amazing light because the dun is mot shining straight and hence maintains the calmness of the pictures . In case indirect light is not available , so you can put a white curtain or white sheet in front of the bright source to adjust the higher bright light and give perfect shade . Because our main focus is to reduce the brightness . Also one can get good clicks when the weather is cloudy because cloud act as a sheild and block direct sunlight and ensure a perfectly lit photo .

3 Choosing perfect objects : clicking a good still life picture not only includes a good subject but also the proper side objects . The objects we choose mainly delends on the theme we want . For choosing the best object you need to think about your subject , if we need some freshness in the photograph then we can keep some plant with lush green leaves . If we want to give an autumn look , we need to think of things associated with autumn , like dried leaves or reddish-brown colour fruits to give that look of autumn .Also one can find many things associated with any particular theme . When we find the objects , we also need to learn how to arrange these objects , so I’m going to discuss about that in my next point .

4 Arrangement of various objects : What’s even more important than collection is the composition or the arrangement of different objects to get amazing clicks . There are many ways for arranging the objects but one has to make sure that the main object should be the main focus , it is something that catch’s the viewers attention . The objects can be either placed symmetrically with the main object in the centre Or the other way being unsymmetrical arrangement with the main object not being at the centre . I personally prefer the second way because it gives randomness and uniqueness to the picture .
Also while arranging one has to make sure about the look like the objects should be uniformly arranged . It shouldn’t be like one portion is heavily burdened with many articles and on the other hand its empty like if you keep a mug on one side , then maybe keep some flowers on the other side . One has to make sure to maintain the balance between heaviness , gaudiness as well as colour tones .

5 Use rule of odds : the most common rule used by the photographers is rule of odds while clicking still life photography . It means that make sure the number of objects you use is a odd number i.e. make sure the items are 3 or 5 or 7 and not 4 or 6 . Let's take a case where one is using flowers as prop for photography , so make sure that there are either 3,5, or 7 flowers . All this grabs attention if the viewer and prevents the viewer from monotony .  Though there is an exception to this rule for 2 , as when we use two objects in a frame it group together and give beautiful frame .



       I hope you make sure to follow these tips whenever clicking still life photography and give your pictures an amazing look without putting in much efforts . So keep clicking and share your pictures in the comment section below . Share your suggestion and show some love.
