Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge - Minimalism

Weekly Photography Challenge – Minimalism

From a recent dPS article by one of our authors, Simon Bond, we’re going to revisit ‘Photographic Minimalism’ (Don’t worry, it’s easy and fun!)

What is minimalism?

Minimalism, as the name suggests, is about keeping things simple. It means avoiding clutter, which in photography equates to removing unwanted elements from your photos.

You do want a main subject, though; this is needed for the minimalist parts of your photos to have something to contrast with. Make sure you tag your photo #dPSMinimalism wherever you choose to share it!

Or maybe a ship on the horizon? Whatever your photograph might be, do your best to show us that photographic minimalism! (Bit confused, check out this article)

Great! Where do I upload my photos?

Simply upload your shot into the comments field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see. Or, if you’d prefer, upload them to your favourite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them.

Share in the dPS Facebook Group

You can also share your images in the dPS Facebook group as the challenge is posted there each week as well.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites – tag them as #DPSMinimalism 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.
