be still week 2-7
you can hunt for props and backdrops in thrift- and giftshops or search for them at home, but nature sometimes provides unique and amazing arrangements that need no further styling or embellishments.
here are two natural still life shots with a mossy tree trunk and a tangle of flotsam. in the first one the moss serves as table top and the flotsam as backdrop, in the second one it is the other way around.
here the prop (transparent blue bottle) is almost swallowed by the surrounding moss and flotsam, and embraced (protected?) by two curvy, gnarly waterlily stalks
in this shot the props (trash) seem to serve as a diagonal demarcation line between the moving water and the pile of rotting branches.
