Minimalist

March 09, 2018  •  4 Comments

This week's blog theme is Minimalism. Using a minimalistic approach means keeping things simple. This can mean removing as much as possible from your image such as other objects, a distracting background or a competing texture. It can also mean reducing colors that can compete with your focal point. 

This image is not completely lacking color but it is what I consider to be monochromatic; all of the colors are very similar and in the same tonal range.

This girl's name is Mona and she's available for adoption through Puppy Pimps Animal Rescue in Fort Lauderdale Florida. 

And since we got a dumping of snow here in New England, I took an opportunity to use the solid white snow as a backdrop to create a minimalist look. This one can also be called High Key where the majority of the image is white.  PS. I'm ready for spring, can someone make the snow stop. Please. 

 

To see what other pet photographers have written about minimalism, head on over to see the post from photographer Ursula of Ursula Garrison Photography servicing Northern Wisconsin and the Chequamegon Bay Area. 

Come find me on Instagram to get your fix of puppies!

Mona is fantastic and I hope she finds a home soon. Both photos are perfect examples of less is more!

Beautiful examples. The color on that Pitt is incredible I love how the background compliments it so well and the Merle is just gorgeous. I'm with you, can spring get here already?

Great examples. Love that photo of Mona. Hope she finds her forever home and thank you for helping rescue dogs with your photography!

I love both of these images! Mona is beautiful and I love how the snow is pooled around the dog's legs in the second image. :)
