Still Life: Pears

This might be totally not the norm for VP but it's one of my favorite types of photography. I love shooting inanimate objects. I enjoy styling them, finding good natural light, fun backdrops. Best of all they sit there forever and you can take countless photos! I enjoy it too because it keeps me in practice and helps me to continue to understand my camera and how to play with light.

These pears came from a coworkers tree. She had so many the tree was starting to bend! I begged her to bring me a few so I could make something with them but before I did I had to take a few dozen photos. Here are a few of my favorites.







  1. Ha, I like the last one there. They kind of have personality, just sitting all plump and yellow.

  2. wow, elizabeth. beautiful photography! i love the last one too. these you could definitely print off on canvas and hang in the kitchen or something... i'd totally want one!


Leave a little love...
