Challenge 5: Still Life

//Challenge 5: Still Life

Welcome to week 5 of the 2024 SlickPic 52-week Photo Challenge! We’re glad you’re here and committed to improving your skills.

This week’s Challenge is: Still Life

Still-life photography is all about creating compositions with inanimate objects. You’re in control of lighting, composition, and the subject matter. Try playing with the arrangement of objects, the play between light and shadow, and the overall aesthetic and mood of the scene. 

This genre of photography can transform mundane objects into a piece of art through careful staging and attention to detail. And don’t forget to use tools like Radiant Photo, Luminar Neo, Photoshop, or your favorite app to add extra creativity in post-processing.

For more insights on still life photography, get an introduction to the genre here at Photofocus or the Digital Photography School.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
