Photo Commentary #22: Minimalist Landscapes 150 150 varunvisuals
This photo taken by Quang Nguyen Vinh serves as a perfect example of a minimalist-like style of photography - in this case, the style was used with a landscape as the subject matter. However, minimalism can be seen across all genres of photography (and other mediums) like urbanscapes, architecture, street photography, and even portraits.
This photo taken by Quang Nguyen Vinh serves as a perfect example of a minimalist-like style of photography – in this case, the style was used with a landscape as the subject matter. However, minimalism can be seen across all genres of photography (and other mediums) like urbanscapes, architecture, street photography, and even portraits.
During these times of chaos, it is nice to take a deep breath and appreciate the more simpler things in life – there are few better examples than this serene landscape shot by Quang Nguyen Vinh.
 
While the image invokes a peaceful mood through its minimilastic presence, it still presents many concepts that I have spoken about earlier.
 
For instance, depth of field is exemplified by the algae covered rocks foreground, waterscape in the middle, and sky in the background.
 
Furthermore, it is possible that two photos were stitched together with masking, one of a long exposure of the waterscape, and another regular exposure of the sky.
 
The reason I say it is “possible” is because it is just as likely that one could find an in-land body of water with minimal ripples or waves. In which case, a “super long exposure” wouldn’t be required. Instead, a photographer could settle for only a 1-2 second shutter speed (thereby dealing with SOME unintentional blur in the rest of the photo – in this case it would be the clouds) to “calm the water” only as required. This is instead of needing to use a 30 second shutter speed to make a rough ocean look just as smooth. Great shot Quang!
 
Stay healthy everyone!
