A Quick Intro to Minimalist Landscape Photography

Here we’re going to show you how to create minimalist landscape photography and give you plenty of examples, techniques and tips to get you inspired for your own shoot. Firstly, let’s answer; what is minimalist photography?

Minimalist photography is a form of photography that is distinguished by extreme simplicity. It focuses solely on the smallest number of objects and it is normally composed in a clean, clinical way with very little differences in the colours and tones of the image.

In the example below, we use long exposure photography to create a minimalist effect of a lighthouse out at sea.

Using long exposures in landscape photography is a great way to get that minimalist look. In this shot, it’s allowed the waves of the water to blend together to create this smooth effect. This eliminates the texture and tones of the water which further enhances the minimalist effect.

This is my new favorite photography accessory

A rooftop tent might not seem like an obvious photography accessory, but on a recent trip around the remote Scottish island of Mull, the TentBox allowed me to go on a photography adventure that would have been difficult to achieve any other way.

Mull — a beautiful island, full of picturesque lochs, dramatic hills and white sand beaches — is a photographer’s dream and as a professional photographer myself, it’s been high on my list to visit for some time. This was also a great opportunity to go off-road in a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Photography Sim Umurangi Generation is Getting DLC and a Switch Port Later This Year

Mastering the camera is tricky. For those who have already become proficient with Umurangi Generation’s virtual lenses and tools, a new expansion is on the way to add a whole new set of gear.

Announced last night, Umurangi Generation: Macro is the first DLC for the indie photography sim. The original game focused on snapping pics in a chaotic world that was both colorful and crumbling. The Macro DLC seems to be heading to new areas of this world like the Depths, a shanty town outside the UN’s purview.

Among the new tools joining your photographer’s arsenal are two very interesting—and seemingly Jet Set Radio-inspired—are a spray can and a pair of roller skates. Spray paint lets you tag areas and add additional lighting effects, while skates let you navigate the world faster. Crouching

In October, Taschen will publish Dogs by Walter Chandoha, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to his bestselling collection of feline photography. While working on Cats, Chandoha began to hand-pick his favourite dog photos, carefully curating hundreds of contact sheets, prints and colour transparencies into marked boxes for future use. Sadly, Chandoha passed away last year at the age of 98, but his legacy lives on in this magnificent sequel dedicated to our canine companions.

A testament to Chandoha’s craftsmanship and versatility, the tome includes glorious Technicolor studio portraits, black and white street scenes and joyous plein air shots – from the frame-filling face of a Weimaraner barking to a delightful Dalmatian mid-leap as he reaches for a stick. A master of capturing the perfect moment, his photographs reflect both his impeccable timing and his reserves of patience, as well as his flawless lighting technique.
