Why we like it: 

Brown + Brown = Brown

This is one of those seemingly simple images that could work well as a stock photograph, or as a large gallery print. I love the play on tone and texture – the contrast of the smooth brown leather on the dress shoe to the striations of the wooden floor beneath.

Isolating an object we normally expect to see grouped with another adds something here too — I don’t think I would be so enamored of this shot if it was of a pair of leather dress shoes. Somehow the single shoe composed dead center, combined with the color and textural contrasts, comes off as witty and playful. 

Regardless, this is a great search result for “brown”! 

Spice up your still-life studio shots with something new — drop the plain white, grey, or black and introduce some color and texture into your backgrounds. Looking beyond the studio will help – you’re bound to find a wide variety of shooting surfaces in your home, office or neighborhood. 

Be sure to check out the rest of stocksnapper’s solid portfolio. Some really good work!
