Groups for Still Life work are fast becoming popular on deviantART - but finding one that covers all of Still Life and sticks with being just Photography orientated is quite difficult. Therefore myself and *claremanson have today launched %Still-Life-Stills - a group for all of your Still Life needs. Whether that's exposing your work, getting tips and help, or just salivating over awesome food in the gallery or staring in wonder at fantastic cut flower shots or ornaments - we have it all! I've also enjoyed pushing Still Life Photography this week for Project Educate and therefore we are keen to continue the trend over at %Still-Life-Stills and keep educating. The group launch was inspired by this weeks %projecteducate - so hopefully we can continue the general theme of being helpful!
Members are very very welcome - so head over now and join if you're interested and start sharing your work. Our submission rules are Here. It also combines nicely with a recent poll that I submitted a few days ago and many of you gave feedback on...
What do you Struggle the most with when trying to shoot still life?
The Lighting19 Deviants
More than Two things listed11 Deviants
The Composition10 Deviants
All of the things listed10 Deviants
Colour Enhancement3 Deviants
And so on...
Whilst we can't address all of these things in just a few days - we can build on them and draw on each others knowledge to try and educate ourselves on how to achieve better shots. Someone here has the knowledge that you need, and you probably have the knowledge that they need. I am by no means expert in Photography and running this Project Educate week and previous weeks has especially helped to educate me. And it's also going to break the bank thanks to =Savaliste linking me to some fantastic lighting equipment...>.> So I'm keen to share what people struggle with and see if we can't start solving these issues! Have a read and see if you can contribute...
