Table Lamp

Minimalism as Less Elements

A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of a Table Lamp shot at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.


This shot was taken during a Clay Festival at Jawahar Kala Kendra. You can look at the Table to see cracks and that is proof of clay.

The cracks seem intentional though and they were eye catching therefore.

The Table Lamp is not made of Clay though, and it is just like any other electric Table Lamp.

I was passing by this art Installation casually, like how I did with the previous ones. What made me to stop and give this attention, was the Cracks in the Clay aka the Cracked Clay Desk.

I thought, shooting the cracked clay would make a nice Minimalist Pattern Frame.

Soon, I realized that this was indeed very basic Minimalist Photography and I should improvise. So, I decided to include the Table Lamp along with the Clay desk in the frame.

Initial few shots were taken from the front and they did not do the trick.

It is strange, though I shoot most of my Photographs from the side, I tend to forget doing so most of the time. After about 3 shots I moved to the side of the subject to shoot.

Viewing this from the side, I knew I had my shot.

Since, the lighting was low, I had to take 2 more shots. Obviously, I messed up with the Manual settings in the 1st shot. I still do ;)

Actually, I shot this in Color. But, of all the shots that I had in my folder for this subject, this one looked the best fit for a Black and White Frame.

Thanks to post processing, I now have my Black and White Minimalism Table Lamp Shot ready.
