[dropcap style=”square”]O[/dropcap]ne might think that shooting photos that would fall within the “minimalist” concept would be fairly easy, however, you might be surprised, as it’s actually a lot harder than you’d think…

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Minimalist shots have to be planned out carefully to make sure that elements that aren’t integral to the shot are kept to a minimum while at the same time, making sure that any elements that remain are significant to the overall concept and feel of the photo.

We feel that the 5 photographers shown below provide beautiful examples of how to create images that embody the minimalist style.
