A Minimalist Picture of a Window with a Pipe on one side(line) and shadow on the other.


This is another shot that was taken at the 1st Floor at Jawahar Kala Kendra.

I spotted the Shadow and how it was partly clipping the Window. I moved to the left of the Window to give the frame some perspective. Moving to the side also helped me to include the Vertical Line aka the Pipe in the frame as another Simple Geometric element, other than the Window.

The Color Palette is also fairly Minimal here. Some Negative Space is also left at the bottom on purpose, which could have been easily cropped out during editing or left out during composition.

I must also disclose, that I really enjoy shooting Minimalist Photos using Light and Shadows. 

Have you taken some Light and Shadow shots too?

If yes, then do send me a link to your pictures/profile on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/prakashghai/

A Black and White Looking-Up Minimalist Photograph of a Flying Bird Vs Simple Geometric Shapes and the Clouds.

 

This shot was taken today with my new Samsung Galaxy S10 Phone. The place is Raj Mandir Cinema Hall (Jaipur). 
 
This is a Look Up / Looking-up Minimalist Shot. 

My starting point of the frame was placing the Simple Geometric Shapes (Line & Rectangle) right. 

I first placed the Rectangle at the bottom of the frame and then aligned the Horizontal Line according to the Rule of Thirds. I then waited for a bird to fly in the frame. 

Usually at the side of Raj Mandir, one can find a lot of Pigeons and they keep flying around every now and then. The time that I was there, I was getting a bird to fly across my frame every 45 seconds or so. I got this one nicely with its wings spread wide enough. 

Not sharing the EXIF Data here, as this Picture has been taken through a cell phone. What I usually do while shooting with a phone is that I shoot a bit under exposed(manual setting) and I always use the 3x3 grid for alignment. 
 
This shot was taken in Color and later transformed into Black and White. I edited this on the laptop though.


Hope you enjoyed the Bird Vs Simple Geometry  Minimalist Photograph.


Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day !

A Minimal Art Photograph of a White Bow on a Red Wall (Square) at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.


This shot was taken from the 1st floor. I have not taken a shot from this place before. I had to take special permission to access this area and I was allotted only 5 minutes. I made sure that I made the best of the little time available.

I was on my 50 mm lens and I adjusted myself to get the White Bow inside the Square. But, I needed a supporting subject as the frame looked bland, therefore, I moved back a little more and included the window on the right, thereby leaving empty space between the two geometric objects.

My primary subject of course is the White Bow, and that was the sole starting point. All else has been done to enhance the composition. 

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/16

  • Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-800

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the White Bow Red Square  Minimalist Photograph.

A Look Up Minimal Art Photograph of the Side of a Covered Terrace, shot with Canon 6D Mark II Camera and 100 mm lens.


This shot was captured near Chaisa Cafe behind Mahaveer School, MI Road. I was on the 100 mm Macro Lens.

What motivated mere here was the Clear Blue Sky and the Brown/Yellow Part of the Covered Terrace. These two colors we contrasting well and the Squares(simple geometry) in the Acrylic Roof added further interest.

To make the frame look simple, I very conveniently left Negative Space on the Top and to the Right side of the frame. 


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/7.1

  • Shutter Speed: 1/4000 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-800

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

Hope you enjoyed the Covered Terrace  Minimalist Photograph.
