Of late I've just not had time to do any landscapes, unfortunately work pressures get in the way - or should I say fortunately. So I've dabbled a bit with still life's, something I can set up very quickly (and leave set up), so I can work on them when I have a spare few minutes. I'm also starting to incorporate them into a few DMs. I'm converting part of my office so I can devote a bit more time to it.
I've had some quite encouraging results but now I want to get a different look - thing is I don't know exactly the look yet. Thanks greatly to help I've had from the likes of Janet (Chase).
So here's my question, can anyone link to still life's that offer something else, I'm not into bowls of fruit etc they don't do anything for me, I want animage to have a narrative etc.
To start the ball rolling a couple that I've been drawn to:
A bit too conventional for me, but superbly done, besides I don't ave the time or money to collect as many props, there also a bit busy for me.
I love the processing almost HDR, but not he uses multi layers of "light painting"
Robert Mapplethorpe I hope the link works is to a narrow google search as some of mapplethorpes images are nor really work friendly !
The above are just a flavour of some of the still life's. Irving Penn has been mentioned but I've yet to see a still life of his that I like.
There are some excellent examples on here from Chase, Cattyal, KeithH etc.
I would really be interested in any examples anyone could link to.

Too late to think about it now but I'll see if I can add to the thread soon
Guido Mocafico does some nice stuff......
Thanks Alison, some super examples there, particularly Lippmann.
Magda Indigo does great flower shots Nick
There's some good stuff there Ade, some of the abstracts in particular are great. - must say a bit too colourful for me tho
get colourless flowers
like the white rose maybe !
Thanks Janet, just the photo of his studio on his website is quite inciteful
An incredible still life photographer is Francois Gillet http://www.artipolis.com/francoisgillet/
Take a look and you will agree.
Thanks Hans, yes there are some good images .
For Inspiration you could do a lot worse than Alison's PF

Ha - and here's me distinctly lacking in inspiration at the moment
Still - how about this collection Olga Vlasova
There great Alison, and what I like is with photographers that are good when they show their favourites you see other examples that are good too.
