Known more from the world of painting, the still life is also practiced in photography. It is defined as “a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on)” in Wikipedia.
Due to their more contemplative nature, still lives are usually not the most exciting thing to look at and not everybody’s cup of tea.
