A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of a Square formed by Light versus a Small White Circle


What better gift can you get from nature as a Minimalist Photographer than a Square created by it. It just cannot get any better.

Getting back to basic forms aka Minimalism as Simple Geometry. A Square and a Circle both within a frame is such a treat for the eyes.

This shot was spotted behind the Indian Coffee House Smoking Area, at Jawahar Kala Kendra. There is an extra table there, where there is only self service.

Somewhere near that area I spotted this big Light Triangle created by Nature. Next to it was a White Circular Plate closing an electricity point.

The juxtaposition of shapes, was my immediate thought and therefore I began calculating the placement of these in my frame and at what height. I had the 50mm lens on my Camera, and what better angle to shoot this than at eye-level with such a lens.

The exposure had to be kept in mind as light and shadow combinations are tricky but I managed it OK. The technical details of the Photograph are below.
