Rinsed Cherries – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm X100F

One genre of photography that I like is still life. It’s not something that I ever thought I’d have a strong interest in, but whenever I find myself dabbling in that category I enjoy it, and I find myself dabbling in it frequently. One reason might be that I can do it at home with things that are lying around the house. I don’t need to travel. I don’t need much at all, just some tiles and an object of some sort will do.

Sometimes I arrange objects for the photographs. Other times I capture things just as I find them. Either way can be rewarding. There is a challenge in arranging things and capturing them in such a way that they don’t look arranged. It can be tough to make it not look contrived. The best advice is to make up a story in your mind of how things might have become that way, and tweak the layout to fit that story.

I share a lot of my still life images on this blog in various posts. The photographs here are some that I’ve captured recently but never got around to sharing. I used a Fujifilm X100F, X-Pro2 and X-A3 to capture these images, many of which are straight-out-of-camera JPEGs. Enjoy!
