The concept of a minimalist photo is simple. You might even say minimal. It should contain a large amount of negative space and a somewhat monochromatic color scheme. And if you can, it should tell a story. This morning we woke to our first significant snow, so large parts of our world were monochromatic; I found this right outside my front door.
I’m not sure this is totally correct, I don’t see negative space for example. I’m hoping to get out tomorrow to search for another example. But you never know about tomorrow, so I’ll put this out there for now. You can see other examples of minimalist photography here, here, here and here. And especially this one. Or go to the original link and read all about it, then look at the hundreds of submissions attached.
Meanwhile I’ll enjoy looking for another bit of minimalism. You can too. I’d enjoy seeing what you come up with!
