How to Take Still-Life Photographs Using Your Digital SLR

Zoom in on your subject and position the auto-focus point over an object in the middle of your arrangement. Press the shutter button halfway to achieve focus.

If you’re going to print your still life, leave a bit of white space so that you can crop the photo suitable for framing. Use diagonal lines and be conscious of power points so that you compose an interesting image.
