I also did not see the still life forum until now...
For me shooting still pictures in my created studio is a way to come through the dark days of the autumn and winter.
I shoot mainly parts of flowers/plants that look interested to me. Whole year I collect these parts and put them away.
now I unwrap plastic bags with all kinds of things I found in nature and try to make interesting pictures of that.
I want to show the viewer how detailed and beautifull these things can be if you look carefully.
