Two Golden Door Knobs

Minimalism as Less Elements

A Minimalist Photo of Two Golden Door Knobs

This photo took long time to be here. The place is Jawahar Kala Kendra, Coffee House open area. It began with me approaching this open door 5-6 times trying to compose a decent shot. 

The Two Golden Door Knobs always kept me interested. 

The first time I looked at the door was about 6 months back. I visit this place very often but I just could not come up with any shot with the door earlier. Only last Sunday, was the day I finally got the shot that I wanted. 

So what changed last week, was my question to self?

Recently, I paused the "Learn Minimalism" Instagram page and many other social media accounts. Well, that gave me some free mind space, say about after a year. As soon as my mind was left with less clutter to handle, I was back in flow with my compositions. 

Lessons Learned 

"Do less of social media and focus more on Clicking good photos."

More on the Minimalist Composition

The photo falls under Minimalism as Less Elements Category of Minimalist Photography.

Less elements being, just the two golden knobs and the walls next to it. The composition is more of Minimalist Visual Art. 

Here, I have split the frame into 3 parts. First part being the repeating patter on the left. Second, the empty wall in the center and third, the open brown door with two golden knobs on the right. 

Remember: The subject here is just the Two Golden Door Knobs, everything else around it has been included just to enhance the overall Minimalist Composition.
