February Monthly Theme – Something around the house – Still Life

****No Nudes****

The theme for this month is inspired by he has ability to take everyday objects you would find around the house and make it into an interesting still life image.

Still life photography

Still life photography is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding art, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with compositional skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. Knowing where to look for propping and surfaces also is a required skill.

There are no prizes for the monthly theme just the fun and satisfaction of participating.




Monthly quote;

I am not concerned with what equipment people use as long as they are having fun, and enjoying photography, and happy with their choices. All my comments are simply an honest expression of my “personal” choices. You can feel completely differently from me and we can still be great friends!! - Bill Fortney

Giving comments and positive critiques

Hi Luc, of course you're right and there are not only snap-shots to see here and I'm sure you know what I meant. And for those getting hardly any comments, I tried it over and over in the first months, but 99% of those members doesn't participate at all and then I'm finished with them. And then you'll see the famous 80/20% rule which is working very well here because of the amount of active members. Look in the statistics of the members with hardly any comments and then you see some of them have written 20 comments in three years. So it's logic there is a sort of buddy-culture here but even among buddies you can be honest and give critiques. And doing so I lost quite a few of them who didn't like my comments but that's not my problem. Just keep trying and who knows maybe once we see the light
