Yesterday I posted a still-life image of bottles, jug and sticks. This morning when I looked at my blog… I didn’t like the edit as much as I did yesterday.
Several things were wrong.
- The Background
- Items too far apart
- The colouring
- The position of the flowers
So today was rework day. I re-shot the still-life image, only this time I corrected what I didn’t like.
Just by adding the crate, the background and colouring were transformed immediately. Altering the position of the flowers made the candle highlight and accentuate the flowers with a better glow. Positioning the items closer together just made the whole image work for me.
This is what I love about still-life photography. If you don’t like what you’ve created previously you can just go back and reshoot the scene again.
