Hello dear friends !
” You don’t take a photograph, you make it “ Ansel Adams
In photography, still life is my favourite thing. Creating something is so fulfilling, whether it be a photo, a drawing, a painting, a sculpture or any other art form. I have always been involved in artistic endeavours in one form or another. Creativity is an internal force, and I would even say a calling. Still life photography provides a way for me to be creative and I enjoy each minute of each moment spent preparing and shooting my images. It is also during these sessions that I feel the most accomplished.
I like everything about still life because I like to be creative. I group different objects together to make nice and visually pleasant images, and if they convey a mood or tell a story, then I have really succeeded in creating a unique image. Sometimes my goal is to just make a beautiful image simply because I am a great lover of everything elegant and pretty.

Two of my favourite things
If you love still life photos, here are the links to the blogs of two professional photographers I greatly admire. Their still life creations are exquisite and wonderfully beautiful, a real delight for the eyes. Georgianna Lane and Sarah Gardner are my favourite professional photographers. Click on their names to get to their blogs. Another photographer I admire is Kelly from Nothing finer blog. Kelly creates wonderful still life images, I really love her style. Click here to go to her blog or here to get to her Flickr where you will see more easily her photos grouped in albums.
I hope the weather will resume to warmer days soon so I can get outside and take landscape photos. The thermometer indicates -26°C (-14.8°F) and with the wind chill factor it’s -32°C (-26.6°F). Brrrrrr !
Have a lovely week everybody !
