A Minimalist Photograph of a Pigeon sitting high up on a Red wall with his shadow being caste behind him, at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur

Minimalism Type: Minimalism as Less Elements

  • Photography Style: Looking up

  • Color Palette: Red and Blue  

  • Camera Used: Canon 600D

  • Shot Location: Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur


Aesthetic Elements: 

a) Red Wall
b) Blue Sky
c) Light and Shadow aka Natures Art at Play
d) Real World vs Shadow World comparison
e) Lines
f) Negative Space

Major Reason to Shoot:

I wanted to show the Comparison between the Real world being i.e. The Pigeon Versus its Shadow,  being caste right behind it, in this Minimalist Photograph.

To achieve this, I moved to my left so that I could place the shadow on the bottom left of the frame and the Pigeon on the Top right.

This movement also helped me to place Negative Space correctly and to put both my Primary Subject ie. the Pigeon and my Secondary or Complimentary subject aka the Pigeons shadow, on the Rule of Thirds quadrant in the 3x3 Grid camera grid overlay.

Hope that you enjoyed the Minimalist Shot of the Pigeon and its Shadow.
