What we have above is a Black and White Minimalist Photograph of the Side Rail of a large Staircase located at Jawahar Kala Kendra Jaipur. 

I have posted many a shots from this place earlier ,but this time what I spotted different was the staircase side rail being illuminated by Sunlight

I am talking about the Two Light Spots at the Top Left corner of the frame.

Those Two Light Spots were the starting point of my Photo Composition. 

Initially I was shooting straight from the front. The image was coming out to be decent but was not popping. 

So, I thought of getting a little creative.  

I dialed in an Aperture value of  F/14 and moved right in front of the side rail of the staircase to my right. 

I wanted to keep the zig zag formation made by it in the foreground and Two Light Spots on the top left of the frame. 

The exact settings I used to take this shot are as follows:


Aperture: F/14

Shutter Speed: 1/250 sec

ISO-speed: 1000

Shooting Mode: Full Manual

Focal Length: 100mm

Lens used:  Canon 100mm F2.8 Macro L Series

Later, during editing I achieved the Darkness to Light effect using Adobe Photoshop CC 2017


As far as the categorization goes, this photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry category under Minimalist Photography Types. 


Hope you enjoyed the shot. Have a Great Day !
