Nature morte or still life ?

November 9, 2011

A ‘still life’ painting is called ‘nature morte’ in French and “natura morta” in Italian, which means ‘dead nature’. When English look at a frozen moment of life, French and Italians see death at work…

My wife brought me back more autumn fruits from the market, pears and pomegranates. After several years in Italy, I am getting influenced by Italian masters and one of the things I like the most, is how they captured light on their paintings. Would it be possible to get  the same kind of  light with photography ? Not an easy thing to do…
