I’m taking a little break on catching up with the #SlowDownWithStills program.
It’s funny… the name is “Slow Down With Stills” and I’ve been rushing to catch up with the challenges as I only joined halfway through the program!
I joined because I wanted a little boost of motivation to photograph moments of the daily life, but I’m realizing now that the concept of Still Life Photography is quite complex.
I always thought of Still Life Photography just as what’s on the other side of Portraiture or Landscape photography. But when searching into it this week I realized it is described as a “demanding art”, in which as a photographer you have to master light and composition.
It’s about making pictures rather than taking them.
When taking the photo you can arrange its composition. I think that’s the biggest challenge for me because I photograph more with intuition, when I see something beautiful I take a shot – rather than making it look beautiful for the shot.
Can someone relate to this or is it just me? Anyway, I’m looking forward to continuing the challenge and see how I evolve with it. 🙂
Tradução: Pequena pausa na partilha de fotos relacionadas com o programa ‘Slow Down With Stills‘. Inscrevi-me como motivação para fotografar momentos do dia-a-dia, mas apercebi-me de que a fotografia de Natureza Morta é uma arte difícil. É preciso criar uma imagem bonita para ser fotografada, e eu sou mais de fotografar quando reparo em algo naturalmente bonito. Tem sido um desafio interessante!
