Still life is one of my favorite subjects in photography. It provides a good practice with indoor lighting, which I rarely do because I am an outdoor photographer. In addition to helping me sharpen my understanding of composition. There are a few photographs (i.e. "Bamboo" and "Red Umbrella") that were edited in Photoshop to practice color scheme and tone. Practicing more with manipulation, I focused on the separating between the subject with the background. (i.e. Shoes).
