Weekly Photography Challenge – Minimalism

It is often said in photography that less is more, but what does that mean? Going minimalist, putting less “stuff” in your images can often help to make them more powerful. The subject becomes more obvious to the viewer, the image is less cluttered and clean, and it has more visual appeal.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Minimalism

This week it’s your challenge to photograph less!

Find a subject that you can photograph simply. Make it as clean as possible so focus is on the subject and nothing else. If you have more than one thing in your photo it’s too many – get closer, or find another subject and practice shooting with minimalism.

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment 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. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
