Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #5: Still Life Photography: Fruit

"As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it."

-Sam Abell


EMPS #5: Still Life Photography: Fruit.
I think it will be fun to do some Still Life Photography from time to time as an EMPS, and now seems like a great time to get started! I love doing Still Life photography, because it opens all kinds of possibilities, and gives me much more creative control. I can play with lighting, and props, and get really excited about taking what I can imagine, and transforming it into art. So, let's give it a try this week using Fruit.

You have until next Sunday evening at, 9:00 PM Eastern time, to post your photo entry, and come back here with the direct link to your post. Please remember, I need the direct link to your EMPS entry, NOT your main blog or journal address.

Now Closed!

Karen shows us autumn in Tucson, complete with time, temperature and sunset.

Greg reached into his archives to bring us the color.

Marie shows us some pumpkins, gourds and flowers.

Connie took a walk on an autumn lane, and found some Aster in bloom, with some colorful leaves around it.

Laura posted an early autumn recipe. YUM!

Vicki and Nancy share with us the autumn sights around their new homes.

Martha found a gorgeous red and yellow flower in the first week of autumn.

Wammy photographed a beautiful old barn, framed by a tree just beginning to transition into autumn.

Kiva's Wisteria plant has an autumny yellow glow to it.

Everyone did beautifully this week. It was a lovely way to welcome autumn for 2008!
