Still Life

It's been a while since I made a still life, so I thoroughly enjoyed creating this image this week. There is something about the process of creating a still life that allows you to slow down and concentrate on crafting the story and the light. Simplifying is something I practice in everyday life and like to use that element in my photography as much as possible. Also, removing the distraction of colour, often creates a mood, emotion and story that is much more powerful.
