A few firsts with this shot - first post on this forum, first time using my brand new 450d (being used to a manual 35mm slr, it's a big change!), first time digitally pp rather than working in a darkroom...

Image

Info about shot:

450d
55mm@ 5.6
1/60
ISO 400
PP involved a fairly heavy crop and a minor tweak of the contrast. To be honest it's more abstract than minimal but still, I quite like it.

This is my first ever competition submission. On a limited edition scrabble board i have used a minimal part of the board, given it a minimal tilt, with minimal tiles and minimal points. I had camera on auto and only cropped the photo and adjusted contrast a minimal amount.

Here' goes: my first submission to the On Assignment forum.

Please be generous with criticism and with praise!

Image

I did some reading as to what the Minimalist movement has to say with photography, and after much confusion, this is my best guess. I minimized the colour, the subject, even the post-processing!

Camera model: Pentax K200D
Lens and focal length: Pentax DA 18-55mm @ 20mm
Mode: Program
Aperture: f10
Shutter speed: 1/1250
Sensitivity: ISO 200
Post processing: Converted to monochromatic image after boosting the saturation.

Cheers,

David

While out doing some urbex I took this shot of a weed against the background of a decayed interior.

Image

Exif
Canon 400D
50mm
1/200 sec
ISO 800
f/3.2
16/7/08

Processing
Shot in RAW. White Balance tweaked, contrast and saturation boosted a little & slight highlight recovery. B&W conversion in Photoshop then I used a layer mask to bring back the colour into the weed. Border then added.

I took this picture while walking home one night.
Minimalistic: The flower is such a useless and minimal thing in our everyday-life, but still has its own charm.

 Post subject: Minimalism in the Home
PostPosted: Sat Jul 19, 2008 7:35 am 
My entry this month is called "Minimalism in the Home" and I want to thank CL for giving me an excuse and motivation to clean & tidy up my shelves cos I've been putting it off for weeks :) I decided to choose just one thing to put on a shelf for the pic so of course, being in China I had to go with the country's beloved Mr Panda.

My first real submission. I thought to myself tonight, as I was over analyzing what gear I wanted while reading other people's posts who were also over analyzing the gear they wanted, how Minimalism really defined my wife's father old Canon Gear. So I took a picture of it.

Image
Taken with Canon 350D/XT
18-55 IS @ 55MM f/10 25"
PP - just cropped back to viewfinder image size

There was a 60watt lamp on the other side of the room at night, so it was quite dark.

Camera: Nikon D80
Lens: AF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 G @135mm
Aperture: f5.6
Shutter: 1/400
ISO: 100
PP: Raw conversion/resize

I had various ideas for the task this month, but couldnt decide on an entry. I chose this because of its simplicity and the way the subject was so bare and basic, in my opinion, a prime example of mimimalistic photography. (and being basic hides my inexperience :oops: )
I especially liked the way that the light fell on the leaf :)
