Still life photography has its origins in classic painting. By definition, it is a depiction of a small group of inanimate subjects, usually everyday objects or fruit, but the possibilities are unlimited. It is a very challenging type of photography and one that requires solid composition skills and experience.
Balance between elements is essential in still life photography, and even small changes in angles or object positions can result in ruining an otherwise good frame. Light is also very important, be it natural or created.
Still life photography does have a professional side, and in case you haven't guessed it yet, it's product and stock photography.
