Online Background Information:
- 10-step guide to superb minimalist photography
- When less is really more
- Remove clutter from your photography
- Working around the clutter
This topic is so “simple,” it can be difficult! It will make you think carefully about your subject and your background. The subject needs to be clearly defined. Clutter needs to be removed or minimized in the background. Don’t be afraid to use negative space in the framing of your composition.
Prepare one to three of your own photographic images that illustrate the simplicity style of photography. You may take new photos or use ones in your archive, though it would be preferable to take at least one new image for this particular challenge. Also, please include any information or tips that may be of assistance to other participants (e.g., how you took the images, post-processing details, camera settings, what you learned).
Starting with this challenge, we’ll be switching over to a direct linkup of your challenge posts. As a result, the linkup tool will not be available until the day before the challenge date (April 12) and a couple thereafter.
OK I'm joining this one although I'm still really intimidated!ReplyDelete
Great! No need to be intimidated. Just go at your own pace!Delete
Love the topic! We are becoming a minimalist family this year so I laughed and celebrated with this topic.ReplyDelete
Ok, question...it says submissions can't be added until Apr 12?ReplyDelete
Is that right?
Correct! I edited the post to make it clearer.Delete
Thanks for changing the link up date and method so that only the related post will be entered.ReplyDelete
Thanks Donna for this lesson. I like the idea of once a month since I am learning new things. I had been doing a couple of weekly links that had gotten over 100 to 150 entries and no way can I visit them all. Nice to have a new challenge. I take my photo taking seriously. LOLReplyDelete
I'll be there.ReplyDelete
I don't see the button.ReplyDelete
I'll be there, too. And this gives me time to think about what I want to photograph. Thanks for the invite!ReplyDelete
This is so interesting! I can't wait to visit the others!ReplyDelete
I'm joining for the first time. I discovered your challenge via many of the blogs I like to visit. As I only discovered you yesterday I chose a photo from my archives for this theme, but will have more time to work on the next one. Looking forward to learning more and trying different things with my cameras.ReplyDelete
Thanks again Donna for hosting this event. I'm having a lot of fun and picking up some tips.ReplyDelete
