Minimalist photography arises from the notion of minimalism in art, which is a style used by many 20th century artists. This style emphasizes the use of a minimal number of compositional elements: color, objects, shapes, and texture.
Minimalist photography is a form of photography that is distinguished by extreme, austere simplicity. It emphasizes spareness and focuses solely on the smallest number of objects in the composition process.
When you call a person a minimalist, you’re describing their interest in keeping things very simple. A minimalist prefers the minimal amount or degree of something. … The art they created is also referred to as minimalist. A white canvas with one black line might be a typical minimalist painting.
Recently I purchased a light box in an effort to start taking minimalistic photographs. I think it’s a wonderful genre, especially in monochrome. The accessory I purchased is Tiktech A4 LED tracing light pad light box with dimmer. I bought it from Amazon online.
Below are my first pictures. I know I have a long way to go, but as you know a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step.
The gear I used to take these pictures were:
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II prime lens
- Manfrotto tripod
- 4A LED tracing light pad light box with dimmer.
- Canon DSLR EOS Rebel T2i camera
