Still Lives 2
The early morning sunlight in my home office is magical. Since my mobility is seriously curtailed by a broken leg and the pandemic, I decided to turn a small corner into a mini portrait studio. Making Still Life pictures of ordinary things - flowers from the garden, food from the fridge, china from the cabinets became a way of staying creative and to push my technical skills beyond my comfort zone.
Fallen Hydrangea petals.
I would set up a shot and leave it for days, letting it wilt and decay naturally. Between the shifting sun and clouds and the natural process of decay my still life would look different every day.
Sometimes I'd shoot at night, closing doors and blinds to cut off all ambient light and use low studio lighting.
