A Black and White Minimalist Photo of a Bird sitting on the wall, with lines complimenting it.


This Minimalist Shot was taken at Jawahar Kala Kendra - Jaipur, using Two Colored walls of different colors to show Contrast between them. Later during editing, I turned the Photograph into Black and White and that further enhanced the contrast between the two walls. 

This Photograph has been intentionally captured from a distance, so that the size of the Bird appeared very small, making it a perfect fit for the "Minimalism as in Small Objects" category of Minimalist Photography.

A Word on the Composition.


The Little Bird sitting between two Diagonal Lines caught my eye to begin with. I had to be fast enough, which I was, so that the Little Bird did not fly away during the composition of the Photograph. Thankfully, the Little Bird stayed long enough and I had a decent Black and White Minimalist Photograph.

This is a Multi-layer shot. There is some distance between the two walls. The light gray one is nearer to the frame and the dark gray one is quite far. I joined these two sections visually and placed the Little Bird nearly at the intersection of the lines of the Two walls.

Also, I had to move a lot to my left and right, and I tried various combinations and angles to get this right.

Thank you. Have a Good Day !
