My Geometry Addiction continues


As you can see, this Minimalist Photograph has many Geometric Shapes namely a Line, a Square, a Triangle and a Rhombus.

I took this shot down on my knees from a far off distance. I had my 100mm prime lens on, so that helped me do so. 

The screen of the Camera was flipped out as I took the Live View assistance here. 

The alignment of various shapes was key, and the preview helped a lot in achieving the same.

The inclusion of Lines on Top left and the Light Triangle on the bottom right of the frame, are intentionally included in the frame. 

Lastly, The Photo belongs to the Minimalism as Simple Geometry category of Minimalist Photography.

Hope that you enjoyed that shot. 

All feedback is as usual welcomed. 

See you some other time.

The Above Photograph of Two Squares On A Red Wall, Falls under the Minimalism Category Simple Geometry 

The Basic Geometric Shape being Squares.

The shot was taken at SMS Stadium, Jaipur, with Canon 600D mounted with the Canon 100mm L Series Prime Macro Lens

The shot has been taken from a good distance and is a LookUp Minimal Shot. 

The Red Wall and the Basic Shape was my point of attraction.

Sometimes in Minimalism, the Photograph is way too simple, and the photographer asks himself, should I even click that? and so he nearly avoids taking the Photograph...

Although, this did not happen with me while taking the Photograph, but I confess, this Photograph was lying in my Folder for a good 3 months and I was undecided whether I should upload this on my blog or not?

For this is way too simple !!!

But then, I reminded myself, Minimalism is all about Simplicity, how can I forget that?

And this is Core Minimalism. 

Therefore I posted this today.

Hope you liked it :)

Have a Good Day !

I have a Blog e-mail Subscriber by the name of Steve Hoover, who regularly gives me feedback about my photos via e-mail :)

I guess he loves more of Black and White Minimalism, as he sometimes edits my Colored Photographs, converts them into Black and White, e-mails me and asks, How does that look?

So this Black and White Photo of Door Handle Shadows is for you Steve. 

I know here, I am not giving you all the three "Light, Medium and Dark" Shades that you like, but instead just Medium and Dark. 

Hope you like it... The original color was Blue by the way. 

Anyways, the Photo falls under Minimalism as Less Elements category of Minimalism.

Yes, Less Elements, I am sure Jay Gould (who manages a Facebook Minimalism group and keenly follows my work), would be surprised and say that there are three elements here, like 3 Different Handles. 

Well, here The Subject in totality is the Long Shadows of the 3 Door Handles (one being a hook sort of a thing, which I have called a handle just for convenience) treated as one. 

The Photo is a bit Maximal in nature or what one calls as Maximalism (still minimalism)

The Shot has been taken with Canon 600 D with 50 mm F1.4 Lens.

Location is, near Diggi Palace Jaipur.
