Photography Tip - Still Life

If you've ever fancied trying your hand at some still life photography weather it be a vase of flowers, bowl of fruit or an ornament you need to consider the background or surface the object is placed on.  Next time you are in a haberdashery department  take a look in their off-cuts bin to see if you can get some cheap pieces of material.  Cream or white satin or black velvet are favourites but natural Hessian or other textured fabrics can also work well.  Use something that is not going to detract too much from the subject so avoid patterns.  For larger back drops try looking for fabric on e-bay.  You can get some amazing deals there.
