Minimalism as Less Elements
|Photo By © Prakash Ghai|
The above Photo Falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements Category. The Picture a little Maximal, as the coverage area of the Reflection of the Electricity Tower on Glass Building, is quite large. But, Still the elements in the Photo are just three. Namely:-
1) The Glass Building
2) The Reflection of the Electricity Tower
3) The Street Lamp on the Left.
and therefore the Photo is Minimalist :)
Another take on The Photo is, that it is more of Minimalist Visual Art Play, than just being a Simplistically Minimal Photograph. I hope you get what I am trying to say.
I found this subject on a Red Light Crossing. I was on my bike Crossing it and The Big Reflection of the Electricity Tower, made me stop right after the crossing.
Yes, a Lot of people started staring at me, as the street was a busy one. Some people even started calling me, to come take a photo of something that they think I could publish in the newspaper. They all consider me a Media Reporter, for the way I look with my rimless specs. And also because of The Big Big Long 100mm Canon Prime Lens, that I took this shot with.
I have made it a rule now, that no matter who calls me, I will ignore all the voices. Its just a waste of time and it creates an immediate disconnect with my sub-conscious mind that generally takes over, when I shoot Minimalist Photos.
I would advise you as well, to not to get into any kind of chatter with people on the street while shooting. I have had incidents, therefore I am suggesting you this.
Well, with that little advice, I would like to close this post.
Hope you enjoyed my find. :)
See you, next shot.
