    Need some pointers photographer

    I haven't done still life shots in about 20 years. I liked them back then but moved to landscape to get me outside. Now I seem to have come full circle but I have forgotten a lot. I am looking for any recommendations for still life photographers I might study.

    Edward Weston. He shot some nice nudes, too, for when you get tired of peppers.

    Thinking about this more, I am most interested in photographers who pair opposites.

    I enjoy Irving Penn's still lifes, one can learn a lot from him.

    Do you know which book it was? I looked at their site and saw nothing about still life photography.
