Some people have been asking me to provide EXIF Data for the photos I post. Today, I decided to provide the same for the shot below. This won't be a regular feature, as I believe that Minimalist Photography has more to do with the photographers vision & composition, rather than the technical details of the shot or the equipment being used. The EXIF Data is as follows:

    • Camera Maker: Canon
    • Camera Model: Canon EOS 600D
    • ISO Speed: ISO 100
    • F-Stop: f/8
    • Exposure time: 1/500 sec

    Composition: The photo falls under the "Minimalism as Simple Geometry" category. Simple geometry being, umpteen lines, and the right-angled triangle on the bottom right. The main element is the shadow of the lamp and its unique placement. It falls right on the intersection point of two big lines and sits at the very edge of the diagonal line of the triangle created by the strong shadow. Location: Near Ravindra Manch basement parking area. Jaipur.
