A good photographer is capable of telling the story of an object by capturing the essence of the detail, by playing with the environment and the lights to create the right atmosphere. The static object becomes dynamic and is abstracted into a work of art in search of the ideal shot that deeply strikes the imagination of the observer.
In photography still life is based on a precise photographic technique that has become increasingly important within the communication and advertising sector. The technique of immortalizing static objects, requires a precise preparation, which includes the right setting up of the photographic set, professional equipment, the proper positioning of the lights, the choice of the best lens and frame.
The aim is to get the most out of the photographed subject, through the exaltation of the characteristics. Still-life is increasingly required for the creation of catalogs, advertising campaigns, as well as for packaging and the world of the web. The shooting of food or the shooting of industrial still life presents many techniques that can be common to one other.
