Minimalist photography is distinguished by extreme, austere simplicity It emphasizes spareness and focuses solely on a small number of objects in the composition. It relies on the most basic use of compositional elements and involves the omission of all non-required components to express the essence of the subject. When planning your photograph think about negative space, isolation, color, and lines and shapes.
