Been a little while since I posted Minimal of Repetition / Minimalist Photography as in Repeating Shapes.


I spotted this Cement Railing at a Balcony of a house located at Tonk Road, Jaipur.


I was actually heading towards the Vegetable Market to shop for some fruits and vegetables. 

I spotted this and decided to park my scooter next to this old grungy house. 

What made me stop was the color of the house walls. 

On one side ie on the left, the wall was painted green and on the right it was painted orange. 

I First took a shot to make this Minimalist Photo fall under the Minimalism as Few Distinctive Colors Category.

The railing on the top left (green wall in the background and below) and the orange wall on the right with a small blue electric meter box on the bottom right. (that would have been my frame)

But, while I as editing this picture, I changed my mind. 

For the colorful photo was shot in Peak Sunlight and was a bit over exposed. 

Therefore, I decided to crop out only this Railing Pattern from the top left of the image and did away with all the unnecessary elements. (simplified the photo)


Since I had shot this Colored, this photo was primarily green (walls) with white cement railing pattern.

I later converted this Minimalist Photograph into Black and White.

Converting the Photo into Black and White enhanced the focus on the Repeating Pattern. 

Also, I cropped out about 60 percent of the photograph here.

I usually do not crop so much, its mostly about 5-10 percent at max (if at all it is required).

That's a lot of editing that went into it. Thanks to Adobe Photoshop's Affordable Photography Plans http://bit.ly/CreativeCloudPhotography

So, keep this tip in Mind,

"Cropping a photograph can carve out a nice frame for you, if done the right way."
