Drinking the morning green tea,
The monk is calm.
The flowers of chrysanthemum.
Japanese Tea Pot with Calligraphy Brushes is a fairly straight forward, uncluttered still life photograph. The juxtaposition of the cool colored, textured pot and cup with the warm hues of the tea leaves, calligraphy brushes, and vase makes for a pleasing composition. Further, I tried to honor the simple, ordered style prevalent in Japanese art.
I’ve explored a lot of different styles of photography from street photography to landscapes to compositing. Still life photography is the most challenging, but by far, the most rewarding. I have found my niche and hope you’ll follow along.
