Still life photography is one of my greatest passions in life. It has opened up many avenues in recent years that have greatly changed the path I walk on.
For this particular assignment I quickly knew what kind of image I wanted to create. My love for firearms always seems to find a way of creeping into my photography, so I decided to run with it. The reflection image is something new to me, but it is by far my favorite image that I created during this assignment. Although it is simple, I feel that it was the most powerful one.
I wanted to try creating this in different environments in order to see what gave the best pop to the image. The granite countertops added texture that I really enjoy, but also made the image a little louder than I personally prefer.
Ultimately, this assignment was a great way to end the semester and has made me look forward to really diving into studio photography on a larger scale.
