A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of a Fork and its long shadow, on a Marble table.


I had taken plenty of Fork Shadows Minimalist Photographs with my Mobile Phone earlier. But, so far I had not captured one with a DSLR aka my Canon 6D Mark II Full- Frame Camera on which I have spent a fortune.

So, here is the classic Fork Shadow Minimalist Photograph. It took me a while to figure it out as I did not want the shot to be very common.

I spotted the Sunlight coming from one direction and had the Fork placed in such a way that an Elongated Shadow was created.

I tried many angles but I kept this one, as this was the most creative. You can see the Edges of the Marble Table on the Top, creating a Triangular shape, and that is what is key here in the composition. Also the Dark parts above those lines.

The Fork is placed on the right with lots of Negative Space to the left. This is how I followed all the Photography+Minimalist Photography rules.

Sure the contrast is a bit high, and some like it that way.

One reason to do so, was to bring the 3 Tones of Black and White aka, Light, Medium and Dark. In hindsight, I could have had more of the Lighters Tones.

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/7.1

  • Shutter Speed: 1/160 sec.

Hope you enjoyed the Fork Shadow Minimalist Photograph.
