"Answers" by Kel Kyle
Our photo challenge for the months of November and December is Still Life. Each photo challenge has a set of guidelines, which are listed below. Please be sure to read everything below, before submitting your image.
 
CHALLENGE: Still Life
 
Wikipedia defines still life as "a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on)."
 
Still life photography give the artist more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. 
 
A still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. And that my fellow photographers is the theme for our November & December Member Challenge.
 
RULES:  Find or create a still life image. The subjects are up to you as long as it meets the requirements of still life. With the holidays upon us, there should be ample opportunity around you. Be creative and most of all, have fun!
