One of the important rules I try to follow in my photos is the “rule of simplicity”. The rule says that a photograph does not have to be complicated, it must have a simple and clear subject, easy to perceive by the viewer.
There should not be elements that distract the eye from the subject and this refers to both background and possibly secondary subjects.
“Less means more” is a well-known word that applies to successful in minimalist photography.
Taking such pictures is not easy. The number of elements in the composition must be minimal but, at the same time, the ones present must be sufficient to symbolize the idea desired by the photographer.
My previous minimalist photo: A discret shadow on the snow.
Do you find this kind of photography interesting?
