A Minimalist Photograph of the Colorful decoration at St Xavier's College Jaipur during the IMERA photography exhibition.


I was walking past the galleries of St Xavier's College Jaipur, where I went to view IMERA their annual Photography exhibition, that was held this Sunday. 

I had my DSLR hung around my neck as usual with that broad black Canon strap with the thin red border. I was hunting for some Minimalist subjects, but wasn't able to find any for a long time.

While I was randomly looking up to the sky, I found these beautiful arrangement of colors and there you go I had a Minimalist Photograph to capture. 

Similarly, in life we are mostly unhappy with the things around us and we kind of get into the trap and fail to engage or find things which can make us happy like hobbies like art, photography, interacting with people, traveling etc. It is not difficult to be happy in life, all that we need to do is to find our source of happiness and sometimes we find that source when we least expect it to find.

Now coming to the Composition part of the Photograph


Minimalism as few Distinctive Colors is not that tough to capture or compose. 

You need to actively look for color contrasts. Once you spot them, switch to the camera's LCD mode with the 3x3 grid on and try to place your subjects creatively,

I mostly shoot from the LCD Screen although focusing as a result is very slow compared to the viewfinder but you can definitely make stronger compositions.

Sure, you can also use the viewfinder, but I am more comfortable sometimes with the LCD screen display as then I can do perfect frame alignments. 

Hope you enjoyed the shot.

Stay tuned for more Minimalist Photographs :)
