And we are onto still life, which is again more difficult than I thought. It’s not just a case of plonking some bits and bobs down and snapping away. It involves way more thinking. I don’t think I’m particularly keen on the “classic” still life. The two that appear on my Flickr account were taken one night on the course, and I used them to explain what I thought was wrong… not least the flash I was using had basically no effect. I think I know why now. So I’ve started trying new things. The photo below was taken when I spotted the fridge magnets I got from The Open University, and thought making an appropriate word out of them. If it was better, I’d try and get it in a stock library!
