Statues Brought to Life With Great Photography


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.

having just discovered my love for taking pics, i would never have considered statues for one of my subjects. now i am truly inspired.these are stunning and make an ordinarily unappealing object reach out and draw the eye…thks for the inspiration!

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….

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.

these are amazing photos, I’ve taken some pictures of statues myself ( ), but these selection has given me an insight of what to look for next time I shoot a statue.
