Photography 101 — Let’s play with light

We’ve practiced shooting outside, getting different kinds of shots, and experimenting with light. This weekend, let’s build on these skills.

Minimalist in Montreal

An artfully executed minimalist photograph is anything but mundane. It illustrates a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace.

A minimalist photo can also effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity, and it is anything but “plain”.
