    How would you define "still life" photography? The county fair is having a photo thing, and thats one of the categories :dunno:

    For example, the classic cliche picture of a bowl of fruit.

    it doesn't have to bet "setup".. In fact the best still life photos/paintings are when the artist finds things how they were naturally put into place. If he can find a good composition, they make the best ones. Of course, sometimes it's rare to find one good enough that's been sitting around naturally..
