37 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.

About Author

Rob is the founder of Light Stalking. His love for photography pushed him into building this fantastic place, and you can get to know him better here

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.
