Best props to use for your fine art still lifes
Second-hand shop finds
Dig around the bargain bins at charity shops and car-boot sales to pick up interesting and quirky objects that have the patina of old age.
Raid the kitchen drawers for everyday cutlery you can shoot and present from a different angle. Remember, the older and more used, the better.
An old baking tray makes a brilliant, naturally textured metallic object that looks the part. Go for the oldest and most scruffy one in the oven.
Rummage around the garden to find more natural backgrounds, such as slate, bricks or even interesting pieces of old wood.
Anything from the natural world, such as feathers, shells or interesting twigs, will translate into great subjects for your fine art shots.
