A Black and White Minimalist Photo composed by a combination of Light Shadows and Lines


What we have here is an attempt at creating a Minimalist Photograph by using the Contrast between Light and Shadows. 

The intent of shooting in Black and White is, to draw the viewer's attention to the Lines, Enhance Focus on the patterns, and to bring out the intricacies among-st the elements in the frame as a whole.

Art that nature creates through Light and Shadows, hold a very special significance. They appear for a moment and until you are there at the same place, the same time, with the same camera settings, you could probably can never repeat the shot. 

The dark wall that you see on the left was red in color and the white on the right was yellow. You need good color contrasts, in order to make the photo look good in Black and White, especially a Minimalist one.

The Less Elements part of the photo is, that all the lines i.e the Simple Geometric shape here, in totality is considered as "One Element", the second supporting element is, Light and Shadow. 


This Minimalist Photograph could very well be categorized under Minimalism as Simple Geometry as well. It actually depends on what or how the Photographer really wants to present the Photograph.
