Minimalism and Nature is great theme to work at when it comes to Minimalist Photography. I mostly shoot walls and geometry but once in a while I shoot such kind of subjects.

Flower Petals are beautiful to capture anytime. 

These flowers actually belong to my own garden. Sorry, I forgot the name of the flower and my mom is now fast asleep, so I can't as her even but I am sure you know what flower this is. 

Anyways, lets get back to the Composition. 

A very obvious shot here would have been shooting this from the Top, aka top-down, and that would have resulted in fairly basic Flower Photography. 

Shooting it from the side(front), helped me to make this look more Minimal and also to keep the viewer guessing about the type of flower I shot.

This is how you can engage/ involve the viewer for a couple to seconds with your photograph. 

Now, you may ask, why Black and White?

Flowers are supposed to be clicked in Color?

Well, we all have our preferences. I shot this in Black in White to keep the photo non-loud and non-attention grabbing, in a way, that's one of the characteristics of Minimalism aka not asking for too much attention.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II
