8 Black and White Minimalist Photographs shot via Samsung S6 Smartphone Camera

Black and White Minimalist Photography looks very appealing and pleasing to the eye and there are a number of reasons for it. 


  • Firstly, Black and White removes Color Distraction from a Minimalist Photograph and the focus of the viewer shifts directly to the Core Subject or the Key Elements in the Photograph and how these elements interact with each other.
  • Second, Black and White Minimalist Photographs help give the Photograph a certain Mood and Emotion/Feel.
  • Third, A sense of Timelessness is achieved with Color being purposefully taken away.
  • Fourthly, with color basically absent, Shapes, Patterns or Symmetry, Geometry, all stands out very beautifully. It is a visual treat.

For the reasons stated above, Black and White Minimalist Photography is also a personal favorite of mine. I wish I could shoot and post more of it and do a series, but for starters I will sharing with you a series of Black and White Minimalist Photographs that I captured using my Samsung smartphone and here they are:

Some of the Black and White Minimalist Photographs have been edited using the Samsung Galaxy S6 Default Photo Editing App. Some are edited using the Free Adobe Photoshop Express Android App and others using Adobe Photoshop on my Laptop. 


To get better results from my Samsung Galaxy S6 Mobile Camera:


  • I use the 3X3 Grid

  • I shoot mostly in the Manual Mode with 1 stop under exposure.

  • Keep my hand very still while shooting

  • Take 2-3 shots of the same subject to be sure of the focus.

  • Shoot by getting as close to the subject as possible.
