Less is More: Weekly Photography Challenge

Less is More: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week, based off our post ‘The Impact of Less‘ our photography challenge theme is ‘Less is More’.

Image by Brian Matiash

Feel free to interpret the theme in any way that you wish – but we’re half expecting to see some minimalistic kinds of images taken and submitted. Really stripping back your images to focus on simple subjects (or perhaps even just parts of those subjects).

Once you’ve selected the ‘Less is More’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSLESSISMORE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – DAWN challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    I love sunrises, I took this just as a quick snapshot on my way to the waterfront to catch the sunrise over Lake Superior.

    I'll try posting this again. It didn't work last time, apparently.

    Best part of the image is that it's unposed!

    I like the idea of "Less is More." It allows the viewer to use their imagination to finish the picture. Like allowing the reader of a book to write the last chapter the way they think it should be. Or the final scene in a movie.

    Simplicity can say so much. I am very fond of this challenge. I have a project right now that is being built around this idea. Saving the simple and the overlooked is the mission of my new project. Take a look and if you dig it, please spread the word. Thank you!

    I know people choose color, but I think black and white draws the viewer in. It gives you pause because it's presented in a way that your eyes don't normally perceive the world. This is my previous series. Comments are welcome.

    When it comes to composition, it is sometimes hard to combine several aspects into one frame.
    "The Impact of Less" could always help.
    Patterns, rule of thirds, negative space, etc.

    I captured this image from the parking lot of Wal-Mart located in Front Royal, Virginia. The three electrified 'crosses' rise up from a hill that's at the very edge of the parking lot. Wal-Mart shoppers pass by the crosses as if on their way to mass.
