For my first Monthly Photo Theme Project image of 2016 [January’s theme being Minimalistic] I went with the idea of Game Time.
In this image I meant for Game Time to represent family time, time spent playing a good old fashioned board game, time just for laughing and enjoying good times.
So what is “minimalistic” when it comes to photography?
Minimalism in photography is open to a lot of creativity; although the basic rules of minimalism do apply.
- Less is more.
- All the attention should on the subject.
- There should be no extra elements in the image to distract from the center of attention.
- There must be a minimum number of elements.
- All elements must represent the overall idea or symbolism of the image.
OK; I think this monthly photo theme project idea is going to fun!
Hmmmm what other ideas can be expressed with a simple minimalistic image…. I guess we’ll find out!
