Still Life.

This morning I tried my hand at still life photography. Which, truth be told, was actually a substitute for a live model. I had to make do with whatever lighting that was available at home which finally boiled down to a single table lamp. To bring in some variety I also used natural light that came in through one of the windows. Unfortunately I had no control over the backgrounds and so I request you to kindly try and ignore the same.

I have wanted to try my hand at fashion / glamour / lifestyle photography and I even tried to get Anushka Menon


to take me on as an intern. My usp was that it would be quite an interesting experience for her to take on a predominantly wildlife photographer as an intern , to her credit she did write back and said that at present she did not require one but should she ever require an intern in the future she would consider me . I thought it would make a nice photographic essay – the travails and tribulations of a wildlife photographer in the glamour world, hell it could even make a nice David Dhavan movie!

I live in hope but in the meantime I decided to try my hand so that I could be ready when called , unfortunately the only model I could get to pose for me was a porcelain lady from our collection of nick - knacks . As an afterthought I also requisitioned a horse .

I am going to burden you with most of the shots I took this morning ( they do look very similar ) I hope you will indulge me and take a look.

I liked the still life photos taken in natural light. The ones clicked using a lamp for lighting had too much of an orange tint. Were you using a tripod?

No, they were taken hand held . I dont own a tripod. Any suggestions for avoiding tints ?
