"Still Life-Beyond Fruit Bowls and Flowers"


May 19, 2021 at 07:15 PM


"Still Life - Beyond Fruit Bowls and Flowers". Betsy Wilson will explore the world of still life photography through her unique perspective. A combination of traditional still life subjects, nature's fascinating still subjects, and a few whimsical and unusual creations, Betsy's still lifes provide studies in composition and lighting. Unlike landscape or street photography, the photographer is in complete control of subject matter, composition, shape, color, depth of field, lighting and presentation. The true skill lies in the ability to take something mundane and everyday out of its normal habitat and transform it into something of beauty by using our skills as photographers.
