Do's and Don'ts for Minimalist Photos in Architecture

Minimalist photography is being able to see an object in different ways, such as playing with geometric shapes, lighting and space.

DO : Consider several aspects

There are several considerations before taking a photo, composition, color, geometry, texture. You can think about what message you want to convey and how to make the photo interesting.

DON'T : Photograph the edge of a building

Photographing objects with a large negative space can confuse the viewer if the composition you create does not guide the viewer's eye to the subject.

DO : Play with lines

You can use lines in architecture to give a sense of depth. You can experiment and choose the most interesting composition.

DON'T : Think that the rule of thirds is the only rule

Minimalist photographer Valentina Loffredo thinks that the rule of thirds doesn't apply in minimalist photography. “I don't like it when a photo has a focus point in the middle but the focus of the photo isn't really there.”

DO: Train your eyes to see shapes

You can try not to take things literally. For example, a window is not just a window but consists of squares, lines, and curves. Stairs consist of triangles, diagonals and straight lines. You can train your eyes to see geometric shapes so you can see an object in a more interesting way.

DON'T: Photograph what other people photograph

Don't photograph objects that other people are used to photographing, at the same angle and angle. Get used to being creative and looking for new angles when taking photos and be different.

DO : Take time to observe

Chan Dick, this minimalist photographer can spend his time observing a building before taking a photo. By mastering the object you want to photograph, you can provide an interesting perspective and composition.

DON'T : Only take photos of buildings

You can add human elements to a photo. Minimalist photos don't just photograph someone in a window to tell a story and emotion.
