Still Life (Straight Out of the Camera).
Once again, it's time to hone those base photography skills. The subject itself is pretty wide open. This does not require any special equipment - light can be studio, natural, flash, a set of desk lamps, whatever, just make sure the light fits the mood of the subject. Filters on camera may be used, any setting in camera may be used, but absolutley, positively NO post-processing. No cropping, curves, contrast, nothing (that's the straight out of the camera part!). Have fun!
