I absolutely love our LAPC community. Why? Because I learn so much about my approach to photography and how I photograph. When I started looking for samples in my archives that would fit the parameters Sofia suggested, I found that I don’t do minimalism. For me, minimalism means a lot of negative space. I tend to fill the frame. I do simple. I also don’t photograph high-key images. That is unless I get my exposure wrong and I discard those!
I did find some images that might fit with negative space.
This lone pelican is surrounded by water that fills whatever space is left.
Some samples of simple but not minimal.
I think this is the closest I’ve come to a minimal image. You can imagine most of the bridge as white space. But even then there’s more going on.
Oh, I did find an image that might do as minimal.
I’ll end with two examples of simple and busy. Or my macro and landscape.
I now will try to do some high/low key with negative space. Isn’t learning fun! Got to love LAPC!!
Thank you Sofia for presenting me with this learning experience. I’ll be hosting next week, so stay tuned. Remember to link your reply to Sofia’s post. Take care everyone.
