Basic info A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural or man-made
Our Still life For our still life we shot in the studio, to do this we had split lightings and overhead lighting methods. The subjects where apples and bottles. We also did some natural light still life.
Conclusion Still life is a form of media used to represent objects of an inanimate style. We can light the subjects by using split lighting and other methods that will give a good tone to the objects. A background is important in a still life picture because it can either tell a story or it can draw focus to the lighting of the objects.
