A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of a Curly rusted metal railing, complimented by Negative or empty space.


This shot was taken during the Govind Dev Ji Temple photo walk, that I went for with a could of my Photographer friends.

While my friends were out to shoot Street Photogramy, I as usual was on a Mission to capture some simple Black and White Minimalist Photographs.

While we were on our way back from the Photowalk I saw  this Beautiful Rusted Railing in front of a house.

I was on my 50mm prime Canon lens and I just could not resist to close in on The Rusted Curl design in it part of it. 

Some of you may ask but Why shoot Rust in Black and White that too in a Minimalist Photograph? 

Well, Minimalist or not, Black and White gives the Photograph more of an Art feel and also accentuates the shapes i.e make them more prominent, by doing away the visual distraction caused by color.

The Composition of the Photograph is fairly simple and straight forward, just like any other Classic Minimalist Photograph. Negative Space, Rules of Thirds, Less Elements, Geometry etc. 

Alternatively, you can also look at a similar Minimalist Photograph that I captured on a different ocassion.
