Statues & Other Still Life Photography

Recommended Posts

Really couldn't find a place for this photo so thought a new topic on statues or similar objects may be interesting. There are 3 of these at our house, 2 on one of the balcony corners and this one free standing on our porch. Stuck my Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm (90mm equivalent) f/1.8 on my Olympus EM-1 for DOF and used Art mode Sepia. Actually the EM-1 has an Art Scene bracket mode where you take one photo and it will save the original and all the available art modes that are selected. This one looked the most interesting. DOF/Bokeh is lovely IMHO. Used manual focus and focus peaking due to the many different depths to the statute to be sure I get the sweet spot.

These are the actual colors and that is what attracted me to photograph it. Found this in Phayao on a recent trip there. Seems to fit in this new thread.

This is the original, unprocessed, of it for comparison.

Personally I think the Sepia version does work better. Gives it more of an artsy, ancient appearance. The color version seems too busy and the eye doesn't know where to settle.

It's a very smooth, dare I say it, contemporary sepia.

I changed the topic to Statues and other still life photography to open up the flexibility for photos. This fits jimmy's photo in nicely as an example of below.

Many photographers prefer still life because it allows them to take their time and control virtually every aspect of the shot. The best shots emphasize interesting composition, texture, form, color, balance, light and shadow, harmony, lighting, or all of the above. However, another variety of this field of photography, called found still life, consists of objects that are found naturally arranged, with the photographer making little or no adjustments. Although we'll be chiefly exploring tips for how to construct still life arrangements, the ideas will also help you identify great shots of found still life, too.
