Minimalist photography is a technique in composing an image wherein the photographer uses a minimum amount of elements such as color, shape, line and texture. Basically, a minimalist photo is characterized by its simplicity but this does not necessarily mean it is a boring or uninteresting capture. On the contrary, a well-composed minimalist picture, can be dramatic and engaging to the audience. It has a potential to set ablaze the creative side of an individual encouraging him to form a subjective interpretation of the image before him. As a whole, the simplicity of a minimal photograph is what makes it a draw, and the striking setup, blending or interaction of one or two components makes it meaningful and artistic. Just like other minimalist artworks graphic designs and web designs, such as WordPress themes with minimal design, can be designed to fit into the popular phrase “less is more” in the hands of a skillfully captured minimalist photograph.

In this post, we are sharing with you some great examples of minimalist photography that you can enjoy or use as inspiration. Try to observe how the photographers of these images capture the subjects, and please do not forget to share with us your thoughts of these images. A social media share is of course encouraged and highly appreciated. Enjoy!

Great selection of minimalist photography. Minimalism is great whether it’s photography, web design or decor. I’m also into minimalism as far as consumption and consuming goes. The less you need the less money you have to have, the less money you have to have, the less you have to work at doing things you don’t enjoy to get that money.
