What do you need to make a still life? Nothing special, really. I myself use stuff from the thrift store or a 2nd hand shop.
In this example you see a still life of an old vase with some old ties. There is some humour in it, the image has no meaning. I chose the vase mainly because it lends itself well to playing with the light. The badgers provide some extra shade here and there. I used an Ilford film for the shot which gives the picture a very soft grain.
