Still Photography Must Haves

Dried leaves add a sense of life, texture, and color to any still life.  I recommend clipping any low stems from branches before drying.  This creates a sturdy base for hang drying and a handle for arranging.  If you'd like to dry delicate leaves use a flower press or tuck leaves between wax paper in a coffee table book.

  2. Thanks for all your tips. I love taking still life photos. Until I read your blog and put your ideas into place, my photos were always lacking. I have a lot to learn but your style tips sure help.
