Still Life of a Starfish

Smith_Paige_StillLife

The still life project was to take a picture of an object that is non living while using different lighting. My idea was to take photographs of a starfish because it is very detailed and intricate. It was a good thing to take pictures of because it will catch the viewer’s attention and make them really look at it with purpose.

I shot the starfish against a burgundy background because the colors blended well together especially with the different lighting. I wanted the focus to be strictly on the starfish and I thought if it was on a black background it would lose its focus.
