    5 tips for achieving minimalist landscape photography

    1. Include an obvious subject

    Use an obvious subject without filling the frame. It draws the viewer's eye inside.

    2. Extensive composition

    Use a lot of negative space around your subject to make your subject stand out.

    3. Minimize color

    Color can distract (if there are many colors) in a minimalist composition. Many minimalist photos are black and white, fairly monotonous or use only a few colors so that the composition is not busy.

    4. Use of light and shadows

    Consider the use of spotted light, striped light or light spots so that light is the main subject in the scene. This can work well for minimalist photography.

    5. Keep it simple

    Think differently and out of the box, but keep it simple. Look for a distraction-free palette to work with. It is often more about what you do not see than what you do.

    So shake up your focus with your landscape photography and try minimalism. If you want to know more about landscape photography, view our course Landscape and nature!
