23 Stunning Still Life Photographs That Will Inspire


Still life is a wonderful genre. It traditionally depicts inanimate objects such as flowers, fruit, vases and books in a visually appealing way. While it can look straightforward, still life is a genre that will engage many of your photography skills. Of course, composition is key – you'll need to nail your subject, story and mood; the background; your elements in your still life and their layout. Then of course there is lighting – ensuring that your composition pops. 

One of the objects most associated with beautiful still lifes is flowers. To capture flowers in all their glory, take a look at Leanne Cleavely's guide Photographing Fabulous Flowers. It will take your flower photography from ordinary to exceptional.

To inspire you on your still life photography journey, we've collated 23 stunning images for your enjoyment.
