Photo Project

Photograph: A MINIMALIST LANDSCAPE

 

Brief:

Your project this month is to shoot a landscape image that has been stripped back to the bare bones, keeping your composition as simple as possible.

Complex compositions with many elements all fighting for your attention can often make a shot unsuccessful, as the eye doesn’t have anywhere to rest, and the overall feel can be rather chaotic.
With this in mind, you need to shoot an image that has been stripped back to the bare bones, thereby keeping your composition as simple as possible.
It goes without saying that this method requires a considered approach. You’ll have to survey the scene to exclude the elements that will clutter your shot.

Here are some tips for this project:

1. Don’t just assume a wide-angle lens is the best option.
2. Be bold with your framing.
3. Long exposures automatically lend themselves to minimalist scenes.
4. Some scenes are naturally suited to this style of photography, but the weather is just as important.
