Death – Still Life

Posted: December 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Tidying up, at home, the other day and some wilting flowers in our house perfectly summed up my feelings and enthusiasm about my Uni course – wilting.

I decided to drain the water and leave them in my studio for a couple of days and then shoot them. Suitably wilted, deceased and decaying they made a suitably alternative “Still Life” for my interpretations module.

Vase on a piece of black perspex balanced on a stool, simple 3 light set up and white background left unlit other than ambient spill from the main lights. Tapped the vase a couple of times causing a few dead petals to drop off, metered it and away I went.

PP was a simple 25% desaturation of colour and that was it.
