A Minimalist Photograph of The Distant Window


This shot is taken from the new Cafe that has opened up at Jawahar Kala Kendra, on the 1st Floor. 

I went there last week, just to try their menu and the tea that they serve. 

Of course, other than the menu, my motive was to get at a unique height or what I call "Location Advantage" to create a different sort of a frame.

I have taken so many shots at this place but just 1 or two from an elevated level. 

Hey ! are you wondering that I had actually nothing to with the Cafe and I can go to any extent for getting a photograph from a different perspective/angle? 

Well, then your guess is right. 

The Cafe was just an excuse ;)

There is something in this picture that I generally do not do and that thing is including a foreground element. 

The Green Leaves, although  blurred and out of focus, are the Highlight of the Photograph here...It is not accidental. 

To start off, I had taken similar shots avoiding the leaves, only to later realize that its the Green Leaves that make the shot and not break it.

Hope you enjoyed the shot.

Good Night.

Its been long since I did a Minimalism as Few Distinctive Colors Photograph.


So I decided to post one today. 

This Tri Color Minimal Photograph was clicked at Jawahar Kala Kendra Jaipur (stop wondering as to how I find most of my shots at the same place?) .


This is a Lookup Minimal Shot

The Kit that I had that day, was my Canon 600D mounted with the 50mm F1.4 Prime lens

I was shooting a Metal fan against a maroon tent sitting down on my knees. And while I was struggling to get the simplicity right in that shot, I casually looked over my left shoulder to spot this.

I immediately thought It would be a nice idea to combine three colorful tents in one frame. 

The use of lines gave more symmetry to the shot.

Not sure, if this would have looked good in Black and White, so I did not try and edit it that way. 

I Hope that you find this colorful shot a little upbeat.

See you around next time.

Take care

I found this setting at Jawahar Kala Kendra. 


This time, there was some construction going on, and this Blue Rectangular Plyboard was lying on the floor.

The board was covering the Window partially.

That gave me an opportunity to shoot my favorite "Minimalism as Parts of the Whole"Minimalism :)

To make the composition more interesting I added the Orange Bar on the top right of the frame. 


Camera Used: Canon 600D

Lens Used: Canon 100mm prime 

Hope that you enjoyed the shot. 

Stay tuned for more !

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. 

Bye.

Two Squares On A Red Wall

Minimalism as Simple Geometry

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 !
