An art group I participate with is looking for a nice, modern, still life photo that everyone can use as a reference to draw and paint from.
If you are a photog and want to offer suggestions of your work to share, please post the links here!
-simple background (nothing complicated or outdoor scenery)
-a handful of items (vase, or fruit, or flowers, etc.)
-non-standard items welcomed (skull, stack of books, etc.)
-not too much fabric. some members are phobic of it...
Basically, just a cool photo of a group of items.
like that, but BETTER. Those are my quick and silly examples. I don't really have an eye for this!
Photog must release photo to group with and surrender rights to artist's own works based on it (make it 'royalty free' for us). Basically, if I paint a work based on your photo, I want to be able to sell it if possible. That isn't the GOAL of this exercise, but that's why we dont' want to use a random pic from the internet.
Got still life? Post your photo in this thread for us to see! We're looking for something inspiring.
P.S. we will be doing future exercises, so if you want your work to be considered for possible use when we explore other subjects (people, architecture, animals, etc.) feel free to post a link to your Craftster photos, blog, flickr gallery, etc.
