2021 50 Black And White Minimalism 1069 marco ciavolino Post

Many Whites Many Blacks

I have been forever fascinated by the insane range of available paint colors provided to today's homeowners and designers. The differences are subtle and of course with modern paint mixing tools, the only have to stock the white base and the machine will mix any color. Whites and black have the same variations. So many choices. You can even bring in a chip of the bizarre 1950's aquamarine from your grandmother's bathroom that she instists you use to repaint and they will match it.

Worlds Blackest Black

2021 50 Black And White Minimalism 1069 marco ciavolino color


It's been a year full of beautiful photos often full of colors, and now is the time to step back and enjoy the simplicity that is Black and White Minimalism. The key phrase to say to yourself as you consider what you'll shoot is "Less is more." Use this week to challenge yourself to see the lines, the textures, and the many shades of black and white, with a little gray coming into the picture. Playing with the contrast bar will give you several options with the same shot. Maybe you'll decide to raise the contrast and really emphasize the dark blacks and grays, or you might like lowering the contrast and showing off the brighter whites and light grays. For a really strong contrast, remember to pull in a lot of black and white with little gray coming in your edit. Black and White on its own conveys a distinct feeling, so different from a color photo, and adding minimalism will give a very clean and uncluttered feel to your photo. Consider choosing a strong subject to draw our eye, as it will need to be more engaging than the lure of negative space that should occupy most of the canvas. And your story! While minimalism might feel stark and cold, when you bring in your blacks and whites, your lines, your shadows, you'll find your photo can convey warmth and emotion. Enjoy this challenge, Allow the freedom of minimalism to awaken your creative juices.
