Weekly Photography Challenge - Simplify

Weekly Photography Challenge – Simplify


It’s time once again for the weekly photography challenge. This week your job is to do LESS! Yup, that’s right we want you to put less in your photos. Simplify your images down to one easily identifiable subject with a minimalist composition and simplicity.

Simplify – you don’t need to see the whole thing to get the message here.

How else can you simplify? Perhaps get rid of all color and shoot monochrome or convert to black and white later? Here are some ideas for simplifying or getting minimalist.

Here’s an example of a really busy landscape scene. Now let’s simplify it!

Get closer to the subject so it’s super obvious to viewers what you want them to look at. Less is more!

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 favorite 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.

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