"only pictures that look as if they had been easily made can convincingly suggest that Beauty is commonplace" Robert Adams
I've been thinking about this quote a lot recently in relation to my kitchen photos. For me setting up a portrait and making it look natural is easy and has almost become second nature because I do it so often. But this new found love of still life is really challenging me. Take the second photo down. How do you make newly washed take-out dishes look like they belong? You should see how many different ways I placed them and still I don't think that it works. I am definitely enjoying the learning process but I have a new found respect for still life photographers that's for sure!
