I own a Samsung Galaxy S6 Mobile Smartphone and all of these 30 Minimalist photos have been clicked by it. I think the camera is decent. I am waiting to get my hands on to the new Samsung Galaxy S7. 

Every Photo above falls under one of the 8 Types of Minimalism in Photography

To find out which type of Minimalism each photo falls under, hover the mouse pointer over the photo and wait for 1-2 seconds. The Type of Minimalism will pop-up. 


Note: I did post processing using the phone's default software. In some photos, the Adobe Photoshop Express Free App for Android phones, available at the Google Play Store, was also used along with the default phone editor.

Spiral Water Ripples

Minimalism as Less Elements


A Minimalist Photo of Spiral Water Ripples in greenish water, at Jal Dhara Jaipur
Photo By © Prakash Ghai


This shot was taken at Jal Dhara Water Park, Jaipur.  The only element in the photo is the Spiral Water Ripples.
 


The water ripples could have been taken zoomed and they could have formed a complete circular shape. But I chopped them. The decision was intentional, as this chopped version adds to the mystery of the photo and stimulates the sense of imagination of the viewer. While Editing I tweaked the contrast and levels a bit. A touch of extra sharpness and color, too was added.

The Photo falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements category. The photo was taken by Canon 600D with the 50mm F1.4 lens.


The EXIF Data of the photo is as follows:

  • ISO speed: ISO-400
  • Exposure time: 1/80sec
  • F-stop: f/3.2
  • Exposure bias: 0 step

Hope you enjoyed the shot. Feel free to social share it. :)


Thank You for your time on the post. I send you all greetings from Jaipur, the Pink City of India.

The Pink Curve

Curves are beautiful and they are even more attractive when accompanied by the Pink color


Pink as a color, is also closely associated with: Freshness, Youth, Love, Beauty, Femininity etc.

Curves on the other hand find extensive use in Modern Design. They play an important role today in Automobile Design, Furniture Design, Glass-wear,  Product Design etc. 

A Combination of the two is way to tempting to ignore. For example the Pink iPhone 6s. That particular color of the iPhone had way too much demand and was quick to go out of stock at India's largest e-Tailer Flipkart
 

Composition of the Photo


The photo falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements category. There is only one element in the frame i.e The Pink Curve. This a look-up shot taken at a very close range via Canon 50mm F1.4 Lens. The closeness helped me eliminate any distracting elements from the frame and enabled me to achieve extremely narrowed focus on the subject and enhanced visual clarity. 

The One-tone Minimalism is one of the best kinds of Minimalism in Photography. It ends up being fairly soothing and appealing to the eye. Go find a large single colored wall, then look for geometry and shapes on it. Keep your eyes wide open. It is easy to ignore such plain simple walls
Even white walls are good and if you do not like the color, you could always convert the photo into black and white and thus add an artistic feel to it.

Reflection Of Street Lamp In A Water Puddle

Minimalism as Less Elements

This shot was taken Post-rain, outside "Jal Dhara" recreation park at JLN Marg Jaipur. 

Finding Water Puddles otherwise is very tough, unless of course there is a pipeline leakage or cleaning going on somewhere. Once you spot a water puddle, judge it by the clarity of the reflection and the amount of light it is offering. A water puddle that is both muddy and reflects less light, is of no use. Choose one wisely, before you decide to put in your effort.

Once you've chosen a puddle, go down on your knees and try to find out, what is being reflected in the puddle. If you do not see anything worthwhile, change your position and look again. I would recommend you to do a full 360 degree review. That increases the chances of finding a good subject drastically. Once you spot something worthwhile, I suggest shooting RAW or using Exposure Bracketing on your camera. 
Getting the exposure right in such shots it a little tough. Post-processing definitely offers helps here. I am also sharing the EXIF Data of the photo below. Hope that helps too.

EXIF Data

  • Camera Maker: Canon
  • Camera Model: Canon 600D
  • Lens: Canon 50mm f 1.4
  • Camera Mode: Manual
  • ISO speed: ISO-100
  • F-stop: f/4
  • Exposure time: 1/160 sec
  • Exposure bias: 0 step

A word on the Composition:


This photo is Minimalism as Less Elements, where the only element in the frame is the Reflection of Street Lamp in the water puddle. The Subject is placed on top right, leaving negative space on the left. The footpath has been used in a way so as to form a diagonal line on the left. The line adds to the overall composition and balances the frame.
Let me also caution you a little. Shooting water puddles on streets with traffic is risky. One tends to get lost in the shot and forgets completely about the vehicles around. I would advise, not to take any undue risks. If it is risky to take a shot, then simple find another shot or subject. Subjects for Minimalist Photos are everywhere, observe closely and you will find many.

Remember: Safety first, photos later.
