When photographing statues, it can be very easy to get a lifeless and flat result. When a photographer takes some time to prepare the shot (or reads our tutorial on how to photograph statues) it can be possible to get some great images. We think these photographs of statues show what is possible with some planning.

Some fantastic images in this set… Wow!
Great pics! Also please give a try at my shot:
These pics are all so beautiful!!
I am both inspired and reminded about the importance of light in photo making. But own up to the truth… statues make it easy to capture a great photo shot. Why? Subject doesn’t move and change what your eye sees.
Thank you for sharing….
These are some really stunning, lifelike examples. I love how a person can use photography to bring things to life.
Some truly stunning and life like photographs here. One of my favorite things about photography is that you can bring such life to things through your camera.
