Lesson Info

Print Your Work and Harness the Power of Minimalism

I'm gonna take a minute here now and make my plea for printing your work. I think printing your work, no matter what kind of photographer you do and hanging it on the wall, giving it to people are selling it, it doesn't matter. I think it's an important part. There's a reason you're taking these images and it's nice to hold them the tangible print. Seeing it on your wall is gonna just make you feel better about the work that you do that aside. I personally believe that minimalist images hold a special place when you're considering them for wall decor, wall art, they hold this power, this calming energy. And the wonderful thing about a clean, simple minimalist image on the wall is that when you're looking at it, it really gives the viewer time to inspect the whole image to take it in your eyes. Kind of wander around. I mean, you are obviously pulled to what that subject is, but usually there's enough negative space and clean space to kind of breathe out from their wander a bit. Come bac...

k to that image. You know, the great thing about these images, especially if you print them a bit larger uh and have them framed on the wall as you can live in that space and live in the presence of these images, walk by them every day for years and years and years. And they're probably going to give you soothing energy, a calming energy. And there's a place for those more dynamic, more engaging, more colorful images as well. But if you're trying to create that space and capture some of that uh peaceful energy that you may have had while you're out creating the image, you know that mindfulness is connected to the print itself. And the great thing about these minimalist images is that they were supposed to be printed big, make them big bigger than you think they should be, Put them up on your wall and just let them wash over you every day while you're drinking coffee or watching netflix or working out doing yoga. Doesn't matter. Uh, print them big and hang them up. And I truly do believe that if you are creating these images and you put them on your wall, you're gonna build some of that, that peaceful energy and and soothing energy into your life. That's my plea to you guys. If you're gonna shoot photos, print your photos, if you're gonna shoot minimalist photos, definitely print your photos and put them up on your wall, put them right over your bed, put them over your toilet. I don't care what you put them, Just hang them up. Yeah.

This is a brilliant course which I can highly recommend. I have done some Minimalist photography but still found the lessons very interesting. I enjoyed the discussion on colour vs. B&W. My favourite part was to learn how long it takes to plan a shoot, wait for the right conditions, even change the subject if the initial idea doesn't work and see the other images taken during the shoot before (or after) the final image. The presentation is excellent - love the cat :-).

Great Job! Great course! loved the bloopers, had a few laughs. I really enjoyed how he showed a little of how he worked the scene of a few of his images. showing multiple images and how he got to THE shot.

Great class, good length and easy to follow along. A fantastic way to challenge yourself to look at composition differently and a course full of useful tips to try out.
