Many of the folks who follow me, or are familiar with my work, are well aware of my fondness for minimalism in my images. Well, at least for the majority of those images, that is true. Those same folks are also aware of my fascination with skeleton leaves, and the opportunities that they offer for minimalistic compositions.
I’m not sure what it is that draws me to these subjects, or style, of photography. Without getting real deep in any kind of philosophical discussion, maybe it has to do with a lifestyle or some other underlying force. At any rate, I just admire the uncluttered look and feel of this combination of elements.
The image in this post should serve as an example of my desire to keep it simple. This image is #7 in my skeleton leaf series. I personally don’t feel it needs anything else in the composition to make it successful. You may agree or disagree, and that is just fine. It falls in line with my personal choices in my art and lifestyle.
My purpose in this post is to ask if you have a favored style of image. Is there a style that drives your art? Is it a subject, style, or message that sets your creative mind in motion? I don’t want to sound really deep or too philosophical. Maybe all this isolation, and separation has me thinking too much. I’d love to hear your thoughts, or at least cause you to pause for a moment and think about your choices in your art. I promise a much more lighthearted post next time around.
Till that next post, take care and be creative.
