I recently saw a photo which consisted of a square of pale pink wall. On the very far right of the image, was a rectangle of black, and tiny cluster of brighter pink flowers.
I loved it! The simplicity and minimalism of the shot is so totally outside my photographic aesthetic or vocabulary.
Seeing Patti’s choice for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge — Filling the Frame made me realise how much I do exactly that. I try to minimise distraction and guide viewers to see the my subject more clearly by presenting it front and (generally off-) centre.
Yet the ‘pink-wall’ image achieved exactly the same goal, focusing my attention not by foregrounding the flowers, but by filling the frame with “white space.”
Expect some attempts at this from me soon.
