There's a common misconception that still life images are all about fruits and flowers, which are beautifully light, but static and not very interesting in general. But there's always a place for something dynamic in still life: just add some falling sprinkles, rising steam or a splash of coffee and watch how this simple things bring your picture to life. That's what I do. I turn my kitchen into a total mess to make photos of falling cups, flour clouds and spilled milk. The essence of photography after all is a frozen moment. I'm always trying to keep it in mind, even if I'm dealing only with mundane inanimate objects.
