Stripping it all back: creating simple, minimalist photographs
As well as turning towards architectural photography I now find my self trying to simplify my photographs as much as possible. I am trying to make simple, clean image, with a lot less post-processing.
I am really enjoying this challenge. And it is a challenge; it is amazing how the urge to photograph 'the whole' can blind you to the more intimate shots available by spending just a little more time and searching out compositions.
I am trying to really focus on elements such as texture, shape, using line and shadow in order to create a more minimal composition. Let’s see where this takes me
I have to admit, I really like the 'facing' image below. The composition is so simple. White, black and grey, and I just love the contrast between the black lines and the light. I remember taking the shot and thinking this is the sort images I want to make from now on. Simple, clean, and minimal.
What do you think? Do you like this sort of photography? Am I barking up the wrong tree? How has your photography changed over the years? Leave your comments below.
