This Street Lamp and Metal Fence Photograph falls under Minimalism / Minimalist Photography as Less Elements


The Only elements here being a) The Street Lamp and b) The Metal Fence.

Yes, I have kept it real simple. 

To make the Photo stand out , I have created a visual effect that kind of portrays that the Street Lamp is a part of the Broken Metal Fence and the fence doesn't look like its broken.

I did so by bending down on my knees and visually connecting the fence and the lamp by moving left and right.

Its a weird shot or one may call it a trick shot or something else. I clicked this while I was attending the Jaipur Art Summit. 

The creative vibes of the summit bit me hard ;)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018. This is my First Blogpost of 2018 and I am happy that I have been actively blogging since July 2014.

 

I begin my year with this Monochrome Staircase Minimalist Photograph. This photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry category under Minimalist Photography. 


Location: Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur

Lens used: Canon 100mm Prime Macro / Focal Length 100mm

Aperture: f 5.6

ISO: 100

Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec

A Word on the Composition


I included only a little part of the staircase on the right of the frame.

I left some space on the top to include the multiple lines formed by the light and shadow differential.

Photo was shot in color but converted to Black and White later in an editing software. 

Initially during editing, I increased the contrast and the brightness a lot, but later I realized that I overdid that part.

So, I cut down on the brightness and contrast a bit and increased the highlights.

Some bit of cropping was also done, say about 3-5%

Thank you for taking out time to go through my blog post. 

Wish you a Good Day !

Side Rail and Arc

I love shooting Staircases and Time and again I think of creating new frames out of it. 

This Side Rail And Arc Minimalist Photograph is a result of one such Experiment. 


Also, I have a thing for Staircase Side-rails but I haven't shot many of them yet.

So I thought, It would be a good idea to try and shoot them. 

What I initially saw was just the Side-Rail to be a Line or a Simple Geometric element.

The frame would have been just too vanilla if I had just shot just that.

So, I decided to include the ARC right next to where the Staircase ended.

This also helped me show the Juxtaposition between the geometric shapes, of one being just a straight line and the other one being a curved one.

This staircase is one amongst the many at Amer Fort, Jaipur.

If you happen to visit Jaipur anytime soon, make sure you visit this place. 

Its Huge and very good especially for Photography :)

Have a Great Weekend*.

*Oh Wait ! Today is only Thursday. 

Well, I Minimalized the Week - lol
