Still Life Contest !


It's been a long time since our last contest, but we are now back with a big photography contest. It's hosted by SkyAndNatureClub and PhotographersClub We hope that you'll find this contest interesting, and we hope we'll see lots of creative photographs. Please read the rules carefully first to avoid any mistakes, and don't forget to check out the prizes ! :D

Good Luck ! :w00t:


:iconskyandnatureclub: is a group for all sky and nature lovers ! It's for APN photographers ! It's for anyone who enjoys Nature :heart:  The reason for starting this group is to support all nature photographers, and to show other members the beauty of nature from all around the world! :D

:iconphotographersclub: is a place for all photographers -- amateur or professional – whether they seek to meet other photographers, to get some more exposure for their work, to find inspiration, to improve their photography skills, or to do anything else photography related!




:bulletblue: About the theme:


"Still life photography is the depiction of inanimate (not alive) subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them." ~ wikipedia

Still life photography gives you the opportunity to be creative in your photograph, because the objects are stationary and you decide what you want in the photograph and how. It will give you more experience in photography, since you will have to have great composition and lighting in the photograph.

The objects can be natural or man-made. So, your entry doesn't have to be nature-focused. If the objects are moving or if they are still outside in the field, that's not considered still life.

There are a few examples below to show you what we need.

Ahhhh.. then I get it.
I just kinda thought "still life" meant "still" as in this example-sentence; "Are you still there?" Not "still" as in something inanimate object. Hhaha :XD:

Sorry about the confusion. We'll try to clarify the rules more :nod:

Still life drawings are acceptable. Don't worry about the "photos have to be taken outdoor" rule.

your photo is okay. The reason we said indoors only because people started sending photos of fountains, large rocks, floors and so on. Those are not related to the concept of Still Life Photography.

Hello,
I have a question about your new rule "Has to be taken indoor"; could you please clarify?
Reply
:iconuae4u:
uae4u Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
We received many photos of objects taken outside, like chairs, fountains, floors, etc. and those are not related to the theme "Still Life". I was discussing it with another judge and we saw that it was better to keep it to objects indoor, just to show that the objects mentioned earlier are not related to the theme. The idea of "Still Life" photography is to arrange the objects, provide light, and then photograph it. If you photograph the fence for example, yes the fence is still, but it doesn't relate to the basic idea of "Still Photography". I hope I made it clear :)

Yes, it did. Thanks.
Its because I had taken a photograph of a small shell on coral rock, and wanted to submit that, but wasn't sure as it wasn't actually "indoors"...
