The COOPH team have teamed up with Youtuber and blogger Jenny Mustard to create a photography tutorial all about minimalism

The video covers plenty of advice and there are examples given throughout so you can easily visualise how the technique works.

There 7 main topics of discussion are: 

  1. Add something organic - Living, natural objects add a different aesthetic to shots.
  2. Use symmetry - Humans like order, it pleases the eye.
  3. Create space -  Negative space 'brings out' the subject. 
  4. Desaturate the background - This creates a sense of calm. 
  5. White backgrounds & Colour - Plain white backgrounds make colour 'pop'.
  6. Adopt a colour scheme - Similar tones neutralise a busy shot and they just look cool in images when put together. 
  7. Think outside the frame - Create intrigue by leaving things out of the frame. 

Whether you’re a photography hobbyist, an avid Instagrammer or a lifestyle blogger, these photography ideas will help you to create awesome compositions and mix up your content. Enjoy!
