Some Lines here are going to the right, some to the left and if you carefully see, there is a T-Point on the Top right of the frame. 

I have kept the Photo colored this time, as the Color Palette popped quite nicely, mainly due to Light and Shadow.

This shot was taken today with my Cellphone Samsung Galaxy S10. I also performed the editing within the phone itself.

I am pretty satisfied with the output of Samsung Galaxy S10 phone camera and therefore, I have started posting more of Cellphone shots on my blog lately.

I have been shooting Street Lamps as subject for a long time now. I have shot this one located at Panch Batti many a times before.

At Panch Batti crossing, one can usually find water puddles post rain. I always go here to peep in the  water puddles looking for reflections of various things.

This particular Street Lamp is situated right at the center of Panch Batti crossing.

Today, its shot came out really well. So it made is here. I actually used the Telephoto Lens of the phone camera, went down on my knees and snapped this at a very low angle. ( you know these photos are flipped when posted).

I did use Snapseed Android App to edit this. I was primarily very happy with the Black and White tones and editing of my Samsung S10 this time.

I would not post the EXIF Data today, as I shot this in the Auto Mode.

Only thing is that as always, I shot this a bit underexposed using manual finger tapping on screen to adjust the same. 

Also, in the composition you can see how I have left negative space on the top and shown the subject i.e The Lamp in Reflection relatively small, as compared to the overall frame. 

Hope you enjoyed the Lamp in Reflection  Minimalist Photograph.



Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day !

A Minimalist Photograph of an Orange Triangle at a Construction site in Jaipur.


I was passing by Tonk Road, when I spotted this under construction site. They had recently broken the wall and put up metal barriers to hide the construction work. 

I waited for the moment to ponder what could I make of the scene in front of me. Then I thought, why not create a Triangle out of the Broken boundary wall. 

Sure, the Triangle was not as such available, rather I had to make it via my composition through its placement within the frame. Therefore, I placed the abstract Orange Triangle towards the extreme right corner. 

I also liked the fact that the scene had Vertical Lines i.e in the Metal Barrier, and that a Diagonal line, that of the Triangle, was going against it. 

Now let's also take a look at the Technical Specifications of the shot.


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/11

  • Shutter Speed: 1/400 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Orange Triangle  Minimalist Photograph.

This shot took a long time to get here. I mean I tried to edit this shot at 5 other occasions, but I only got the Black and White editing right, this time.

I had to make the staircase darker and some other parts dark as well, so that I could bring down the excess detail in the shot.

Sometimes, I do this during editing at other times I try to be careful on field. What happens is that, while you are on field, you tend to take a lot of shots and sometimes you get carried away in the flow. Here, I did end up capturing more details than required.

To Compose this, my starting point was the Two Window Panes. I placed them on the extreme right and top hand side of the frame and let rest of the subjects fit in.

I shot this in color and therefore that made it even more difficult to imagine this as a Minimal shot for starters. I have written about it before, but I will explain it again:-

"Sometimes you need to take the color off the photograph, to do away with the clutter caused as a result of it."


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/8

  • Shutter Speed: 1/15 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-400

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Two Window Panes  Minimalist Photograph.



Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day !
