I clicked this Minimalist Photograph at Hawa Mahal, Jaipur (India). If you have not been to this Place, then you must visit it. It is one of the Main Tourist Attractions of the City.

You will find lots of intriguing architecture here. The Ddoors, Windows and the Staircases are just a treat for the eyes. Not to forget the subtle decay and texture on the walls and of course the very beautiful colors. 

Lets quickly take a look at the Highlights of the Shot

  • Minimalism Type: Simple Geometry (primarily the lines)
  • Theme: Minimalism and Architecture
  • Style: Shooting flat from the front.
  • Aesthetic Elements:

    • The mysterious Left Turn
    • Subtle Texture on the Walls
    • Lines: Leading lines on the right and that of the steps
    • Decay on the Steps
  • Camera Used: Canon 600D
  • Lens Used: Canon 50mm F 1.4 Prime Lens

More Information:

Other than that I would like to mention that, these kind of composition is all about which part of the staircase are you taking the photo from. And how far and close you want to show that in the frame..

Another choice is the decide what kind of depth you want to show..

Consider all these factors when shooting Staircase Minimalism

Hope that you enjoyed the shot.

Take Care !

Have a Good Day :)


  1. The "mysterious left turn" is what makes it for me. Even in pictures that are centred on a specific subject, my eye is drawn away to doors, staircases, arches, alleyways, to wonder "where does that go?"
