I clicked this image of Two Pink Chairs at Nibs Cafe Jaipur. 


One of my friends called me there for a cup of Coffee and some Pasta :)

I don't spare Cafes even. Oh well, you know it by now ;)

I got motivated to click this because, the Pink Color stood out nicely against the Blue Brick Wall. 

Next thing that came to my mind was, How to compose the frame to make it look decently interesting?

So, I decided to go with the Parts of the Whole Minimalism Strategy.

I clicked only a part of both the Pink Chairs and left some gap in between.

I made sure that I included the Blue Pipe on the top to add an extra pop/element (line) to the frame.

The Texture on the wall was good and the chairs were flat. So that contrast also helped.


The EXIF Data for the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Maker: Canon

  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Macro L Series Lens

  • F-stop: f/4

I spotted these Two Yellow Chairs right outside one of the Art Galleries at Jawahar Kala Kendra

The exhibition was organized by Doon Academy Jaipur and the content of the exhibition was Art made by young school kids out of waste.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the talent of young children. They used Ice-cream sticks, News papers, Ear-buds etc to make wonderful common household items like, Table Lamps, Pen Stands, Wall Mirrors etc.

Right before entering the exhibition, is when I captured this shot. 

I was down on my knees for this. I realized that I should be taking more shots from a low angle


Also, as promised earlier, I have finally posted a Colored Minimal Art Photograph after along time.

One more thing is that shooting Minimalism as Parts of the Whole really makes me happy. 

The Two Yellow Chairs have be carefully cut used my Camera by me being down on my knees aka being on a very low angle. 

On Top, you see a lot of Negative Space in the frame.

This is a very typical Non-busy, Simplistic, Imaginative, Minimal Art Photograph.
