AIM FOR MIN­I­MAL­ISM

Take a stripped-back ap­proach for ethe­real or ab­stract pho­to­graphs

Digital Photograper - - Essential Creative Techniques -

Re­mov­ing items from the com­po­si­tion can be as cre­ative as ar­rang­ing those present within it. Min­i­mal­ism is of­ten paired with ab­stract ap­proaches, but al­ways in­volves the iso­la­tion of a clear sub­ject, with an ef­fec­tive use of neg­a­tive space. Use these im­ages as op­por­tu­ni­ties to ap­ply some of the other tech­niques dis­cussed, to en­hance colour con­trast or tonal vari­a­tion, or to cre­ate high or low-key ex­po­sures. Min­i­mal­ism is an ef­fec­tive method of find­ing unique im­ages from oth­er­wise over­looked sub­jects and de­tails.
