Still Life Photography
Whilst Still Life Photography is often considered to be the staging and shooting of a group of inanimate objects - it's more than likely best recognised especially on deviantART as singular items and in particular dishes - such as meals or baked foods. It's an under appreciated art form for sure in that those who don't actively engage in the set up of such shots do not actively appreciate the effort that goes into staging, lighting and composing such pieces. A Still Life Photographer Makes a picture rather than just Take it.

It's important to remember that however you categorise your work - you are often not limited to one category. You might find that you have a beautiful cake that you've made and photographed which could not only belong in the Still Life - Food Gallery but also could belong with the Culinary Creations of the Artisan Crafts Galleries. You could have a beautiful flower arrangement that has been staged in such a way that a concept lies beneath it and thus your work may belong in the Conceptual Photography Galleries as well as Still Life - Cut Flower Arrangements. The beauty of Art is that in most cases - it's ambiguous. You just have to remember to stay within the boundaries that do exist.
