Old lamps

These lamps were used to decorate a window display in a department store. Just goes to show that creativity can strike anywhere!

I love these lamps as they embody the concept of wabi sabi – the Japanese art of finding beauty in all imperfection.

Tips for shooting still life:

  • Keep it simple and take a minimalist approach.
  • Be aware of glassy, shiny, and reflective surfaces.
  • Background – with lighter subjects, the background should be darker, and vice versa.
