A Minimalist Photograph of Colorful Drapes across the sky Versus Two Street Lights, shot at Ganpati Plaza Jaipur.


I went to Ganpati Plaza Shopping Complex in October 2018, a few days before Diwali Festival that was in November. The Shopping Complex was decorated with Colorful Drapes and fancy lights. It is a tradition here in India. Most of the Bazaars are decorated right before Diwali and they host huge discounts to promote their Sales.

While I was on the Ground Floor, I looked up at the Drapes and mentally composed a Few shots with  only the Colorful Drapes and Blue Sky.

Then I wondered, if I could get a bird flying across the frame. But, since it was still not evening, the chances of birds flying past my pre-composed frame were fairly slim.

Therefore, instead of waiting for a bird to fly across my frame, I chose these Static Curved Street Lamps instead.

Since the Key Subject here are the Two Street Lamps, I started my composition with them by placing them at  the bottom right corner of the frame.

Then, I adjusted my movement to fit in the Colorful Drapes. There were other Colored Drapes as well, but I chose these Olive and Reddish ones, for they made for a better Color Palette.
