FRAMES: Photo Challenge #73: Still Life (Redefined)

January 16th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

Okay so I am getting a lot of photos that do not fit this challenge theme, so I feel like I need to redefine what I am looking for, for this Still Life Photo challenge.

A Still Life is defined as :a photo of an arrangement of inanimate objects.

Okay so inanimate is defined as: not alive, esp. not in the manner of animals and humans.

So yes, you could claim that the sunset or clouds are inanimate, BUT no that is not a still life. Landscape photos are out for this one, as are sunsets, wildlife etc.

Here is a google search of still life photography

When most people think of Still Life, they think of a bowl of fruit on a table. Well sure, you can photograph a bowl of fruit on a table but your still life can be of any inanimate subject matter that you wish. Creativity and “out of the box” thinking is as always encouraged for this and all photo challenges.

As with all photography, the three key things to remember are of course, composition, light and subject matter.

Deadline for this challenge will be February 1st. and “stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap Sun.

You may email your entries to me:, or use the handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix link on the right side of this page. Please remember to include your name if you use the handy uploader and choose the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge” channel so I can find your images.
