Still at it

I got a bit tired of going out into the terrible weather we have had of late, so took a hour of my life to make a still life with some of the detritus on the Winter Parlour table. Used the Spotmatic loaded with Era100.
I must say, when one looks at great still life photography, it does seem quite easy to do. In practice it is one of the most difficult forms I think. As the saying goes; "Its all about the light". Look here for a paper neg print by Andrew Sanderson - or here for another superb print by the same artiste.

I have to agree. Achieving good, pleasing still life compositions is tricky, and then deciding on the lighting, where to focus etc. etc.
