This week’s challenge asks us to share a “minimalist” image, one with “a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer.”
That’s a tall order!
Here are two shots from last February and (hopefully!) they hit the mark.
After a few minutes, the ladies above joined their friend in the water:
Photography is a funny thing: I was aiming for Maggie on her paddleboard (teeny-tiny figure back/center of first photo; nearly off frame in the second) but the three women became the focal point instead!
Sometimes the subject you shoot isn’t the subject you get, but I think it worked out perfectly for this challenge!
Until next time…
