Found in a Haystack

I found the needle. Shot with a needle, flashlight, and a piece of foamcore. 

This is my alernate photo: "Robot Stands Alone," taken at a recent tradeshow.

This week we're going with the genius expression of: less is more! The intention of minimalism is to simplify - usually in your composition, but also the amount of color, lighting, even the number of subjects will help to minimize your frame. A balanced composition with a lot of "negative space" will help incredibly well to achieve this. Think of it this way - what can you remove from your image in order to add to it? And how can you remove it? A good idea is to find a clean background, like a nice blank wall (could be a flat bold color, could be a simple black or white, could even be textured) and place a subject in front of it. You could also minimize background by shooting with a low aperture setting, which will essentially blur out your background. Minimalism can be used in a variety of photographic genres - portraits, landscapes, food, abstract, and even macro photography. Keep things uncluttered and free of distraction. Be deliberate in what you want your photo to portray. Think of how to make your subject pop. Think of what elements to include and what can be discarded. (reminds me, we should clean out our closets) Finally, minimalism doesn't always mean black and white - you can and should use color to great effect to engage your viewer with the emotion and story that is your photo.
