The images presented by the minimalist composition usually look very artistic, very literary and fresh.
In order to get this kind of literary effect, we must ensure that there are very few elements in the picture and make most of the picture blank. For specific operations, you can take a picture based on the following precautions.
First point: Be sure to keep the picture simple and clean. The background can be a solid color picture or a picture with regular elements.
The second point: grab the local light. You can use the large light ratio effect to arrange the main body in the bright part of the picture, and most of the rest are in the dark.
The third point: learn to apply color matching. It can be photographed using black and white imagery. Most of the picture is white, the main body is black; or the subject is a bright color, and the rest is a dull color.
Fourth point: There must be a concept of minimalist composition when framing a composition. Follow the subtraction rules in the composition to give the picture a simple and easy to understand feeling.
Choose a vantage point and use minimal composition to show the street in the rain. The umbrella man just happens to be passing by, which makes the picture full of story.
Shooting a small mountain village when it snows, let the screen have a large area of white space. Use the close-up roof and the mountain peaks in the distance to compose the picture, making the picture simple and layered.
Standing on a high place, shooting pedestrians with a bird’s-eye view, the picture is simple and clean, and very vivid.
Triangle composition is to construct the body in a triangle-like structure. Of course, this triangle structure is not necessarily a standard triangle shape. It can be a virtual triangle or a triangle-like shape.
When doing triangle composition, we will encounter two situations. First, there is only one body in the picture, and the three points of this body can form a triangle shape. Secondly, there are multiple subjects in the picture. We can construct them in a triangle at a certain angle to achieve the effect of triangle composition.
In addition, we often divide the types of triangles into three types, namely, an equilateral triangle, an oblique triangle, and an inverted triangle. Different triangles can bring different characteristics to the picture:
1.The regular triangle brings stability to the picture
In geometry, the regular triangle is one of the most stable graphics. It can be used in the composition to give people a smooth and balanced feeling, just like the pyramid gives people the same feeling
The regular triangle gives a solid and unshakable sense of stability to the pyramid, while the inverted triangle is like a gyro that stays upright during the rotating motion, giving a very unstable visual experience that can be used to break the symmetry and balance of the picture.
Because we are not pursuing standard triangles, in natural things, oblique triangle elements are more common than erect triangles or inverted triangles. The oblique triangle will give the picture a balanced, dynamic, yet flexible experience.
The famous pyramid in Egypt is a very typical shape of a regular triangle. In addition to the mystery of the picture, the pyramid also gives the picture a solid, unshakable sense of stability.
This is the famous Mont Saint-Michel in France. It uses the grass as a foreground when shooting, and places the Mont Saint-Michel in a farther position, making the castle of Mont Saint-Michel more mysterious; and the mountains and castles Shaped like an erect triangle, giving a stable, unshakable feeling.
The rocks in the valley are weathered to form a shape resembling an inverted triangle, giving the picture a very unstable visual experience.
The three boats in the foreground in the lake form a pattern resembling a diagonal triangle, making the picture vivid and flexible. At the same time, they echo the vessels in the middle position, increasing the spatial layering of the picture.
