A Colorful Minimal Art Photograph of Green Leaves on a Colorful Backdrop, with Negative Space on the Side.


This shot, just like the Last one "Colorful Stripes" was taken at Kalaneri Art Gallery. 

After a long time, I have captured some Nature Minimalism. 

The Negative Space that I left on the Side, is very Classic of a Core Minimalist Photograph. (though its not necessary that one uses Negative Space in every shot)

What's different this time around, is that the Negative Space has some well aligned geometrically placed colors. That Pops the Shot out !

I was lucky to find a Green Color Strip along with the Green Leaves, and therefore, the overall Color Palette is also kept fairly Minimal.



The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/9

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 160 sec.

Minimalism as Less Elements

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of a Staircase at Forresta Cafe Jaipur.


So, I was at Cafe Jaypore (inside Forresta) once.

This is a picture of the Staircase that I took on my way back.  What I liked here was the curve in the Staircase and also those little wall lamps. 

For sure, I have a thing for Staircases, but sadly, I don't get to see many of them in my City, at least not any unique ones.

Its been very long that I have traveled. I guess, more than 5 years now. When I do go out, I will make sure to capture as many staircases as I can.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/22

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 40 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-2000

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

Hope you enjoyed the Paint Decay Minimalist Photograph.

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of Paint Coming off (decay) from a Metal Sheet of a Sign Board.


This Sign Board was Spotted outside Gate No. 1 at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. The Paint coming off from the sheet caught my eye. I thought why not just turn the Camera into the Monochrome mode and take a Shot.

I had been waiting to capture such a Photograph for a very very long time, but I guess so far, I did not like and of the decay that I had spotted in such frames.

 Here, somehow the arrangement of the Paint Decay patches, look to be in harmony.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/11

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 500 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-2500

  • Focal Length: 105 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

Hope you enjoyed the Paint Decay Minimalist Photograph.

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of the Facade of a building, with Rectangles in Repetition as a Pattern


This shot was taken near Lifestyle Mall / MGF Fall Jaipur. This is a building to its right. I had not captured a Minimalism as in Repeating Shapes Photograph in a while and this tempted me. The only challenge here, was to keep the lines as straight as possible, so that the symmetry appeared right in the frame.

Since I was shooting from the ground, and I was looking up, the lines were not coming out straight. They are not near perfect here though even now.

I did adjust the lines by moving myself to a higher ground and raised the camera as high as possible to view the scene on the LCD screen of the camera.

Since the Repetition of Rectangles here spreads across the frame, some may find this image to be too busy, yet it is not.

It is just one element in repetition. This is a good example of a Maximally Minimal Photograph.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/5.6

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 60 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Repeating Rectangles Minimalist Photograph.

A Minimal Art Photograph of a patch of White Paint above a Blue Chair, on an Orange Wall.


This shot was taken at New Colony Jaipur. This wall was right opposite a Scooter Repair Shop. The white Paint patch right above the Blue Chair, prompted me to take the shot. 

I went down a bit low on my knees and carefully placed the Blue Chair in the bottom left of the frame, following Rule of Thirds.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

OK, so I am back with a Colored Minimal Art Photograph. I just surprised myself with that to be honest. 

Someone told me today, that I am not putting up enough Minimal Art Photos lately. Well, that is kinda true, as I am currently exploring Street Photography to basically reset my vision for Minimalism. If you want to have a look at some of my Street Photographs, head over to my Instagram Profile and check the "street photos" highlights section there https://www.instagram.com/prakashghai/ 

Coming back to the Minimalist Photograph posted above, it is easy to spot my love for Geometry. The Iron Bar is a Straight Line forming a Triangle and the Black Wire running across, is a curve. The edge of the wall is also a Vertical Line and of course, and the Shadow of the Wire enhances the frame. Oh ! and did I forget to mention the striking Pink Color of the wall? (all elements of minimalist photograph)

So, now you got it, isn't it?  This is how I keep Photos simple and yet make them subtly interesting. 

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/8

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 800 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Focal Length: 56 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the The Tight Corner Minimalist Photograph.
