The light sources in still life photography can be either natural and studio lighting. Lighting is crucial in still life photography and its positioning will either make or break your photos. Natural light is an excellent lighting source to create a soft diffusion when it’s filtered through a window or modified with a sheer curtain. Hard sunlight can create beautiful reflections and shadows on the images and enhance the composition if you frame it just right. Unlike natural sunlight, studio lighting is more reliable and can be easily manipulated to your liking for still life photography. Studio lighting is often the choice of lighting to use for a dark and moody theme in product images. You could modify the lighting by adding honeycomb grids to your softbox if you want it to be directional and contrasting.
