About Us

Welcome to the group! We're here to hopefully help promote Still Life Photography and in particular your work. We have gallery folders open for submission, upcoming blogs, tips & tutorials. Whether you need help understanding what Still Life Photography is, expose your own work or just look at some amazing creations - we're the group for you! Read more about us here.

If your work is declined and you'd like to know why please ask us! We are happy to help.

Our Gallery Folders

:bulletblack: Dolls
The Dolls Gallery is for all your Still Life shots of Dolls. Please be aware that you can also submit your Doll work to Artisan Crafts but be sure to keep the divide when submitting to this group.

:bulletblack: Danbo
The cute little box figure deserves a gallery all to himself we decided! Danbo is popular and some say over-used, but we're confident we can get some unique little shots into the gallery and welcome your Danbo shots.

:bulletblack: Food - Baking
Whilst most of the time we would hope that you create your own subjects to photograph for Baking, we do understand that sometimes you can get some beautiful shots of things that are already made. Therefore we welcome all sorts of food creations into this gallery that fall under cakes, cookies, pastries and tarts!

:bulletblack: Food - Desserts
Not to be confused with baking - Desserts is all about cheesecake, yoghurts, pies, ice cream and so on.

:bulletblack: Food - Meals
Meals must be shown as main meals with the emphasis on the whole dish rather than a selected area.

:bulletblack: Food - Other
This is for anything else - fruit, salad, meat...anything that is singular and on its own and doesn't fit the other gallery defintions!

:bulletblack: Drink
Whether you've got a lovely shot of some coffee beans, a steaming mug of hot chocolate or something else - this is the folder for you! Keep those cocktails coming!

:bulletblack: Cut Flowers and Flower Arrangements
This folder is for cut roses and so on - flowers that you've bought or cut that aren't still growing in the garden! Not to be confused with the flowers section of Animals, Plants and Nature.

:bulletblack: Arrangements
As you will see in this folder, this is both for cute and quirky arrangements and traditional set ups of Still Life Photography. Whether it's an arrangement of fruit, shoes, or ornaments e.t.c NB: Cut flowers MUST go to the cut flowers gallery.

:bulletblack: Jewellery
Open for all types of jewellery! Remember that still life does not involve the living though - so if there are people in your shots it will be rejected!

:bulletblack: Bottles & Bokeh
We had to have a folder for those lovely still life bottle shots - anything remotely featuring a Bottle and fitting the still life requirements can come here!

:bulletblack: Miscellaneous
For everything else Still Life that doesn't fit above!

:bulletblack: Ornaments
For all types of ornaments that don't fit bottles, bokeh, dolls and jewellery!


Enjoy the group! If you have ideas, suggestions and thoughts on what we can add or do - let us know!
