Still Life photography requires a great deal of emphasis on light quality, composition and point of view. It's demanding because you have to breathe life into a bunch of inanimate objects.
My experiments began with a guitar. After making 50 charcoal sketches and studying it from every angle imaginable, I endeavoured to photograph it under different conditions of light and in different surroundings.
It's amazing how many a time, the object just seems to spin some magic of its own accord. You begin to wonder if the camera and the object are comrades and you're just a medium, watching!
