Good Evening All !

Today, I wanted to share this photograph of a Solo Water Droplet.


The reason why I am sharing this photograph today is that It goes with my current mood.

I feel pretty lonely, sad isolated today. (of course this is just a mood swing)

This Photograph completely goes with that mood. And Hey ! 

This is the purpose of Art is. Isn't it?

When people can relate their mood, life events, feelings etc to artworks/photographs, their connection to the piece of art goes to another level.

Minimalist Photography is not about Flat Photographs. We need to make the photos Artsy too, as often as we can. And that is a big challenge.

Now, you may tell me that hey, you are relating this photograph to a mood after taking the shot. So this is not the shot that you initially planned capturing. 

My answer to this is simple !

What does a photographer shoot? 

Well.. He either shoots his conscious mind or his subconscious mind. So there must have been an hidden emotion/thought/feeling at the back of my mind, while I was capturing this shot.

And, its only now, that I have discovered that as to why I clicked this Photograph in the first place.

So basically, if one studies his own shots closely, he may able to understand what goes on deep down within one's subconscious mind. 

Now, Lets take a look at the Simplistic Composition.


All that I tried to do here, was to create a curve with the violet leaf and get the background blurred. 

Other than that, just as usual I left negative space. 

Of course you need a Macro Lens for this. The one that I used here, is the Canon 100mm Prime Macro 2.8 L Series.

I really love shooting Water Droplets, that are formed post rain. I do not like to recreate them in a controlled environment, because the feel is completely lost then.

I did a Macro Water Droplet series earlier. In case you missed it, then please check the link below.

  1. Loved it...may be because I can relate with it. A look at it sent the shivers through my body. May I set it as my desktop background?
