Still Life - Flowers/Fruits

Flowers and fruit symbolize the simple pleasures of everyday life and the beauty nature brings to our modern lives; still life photography freezes this beauty. Traditionally photographers have aimed to capture these images with attention to texture, color, and lighting, but more recently contemporary photographers like Ben Schonzeit have incorporated new and innovative elements. For instance, Schonzeit often photographs flowers in front of art historically known paintings, producing an interesting twist on the traditional still life.
