Sometimes, it's sort of like watching a movie – you may not be able to write a screenplay or know how to direct a film but you do know what a good film looks like and what plots seem hokey, even if you can't put it into words. Such is the case with the set of GEO-tographs that I've included below. Of course they are in focus, have good color and interesting content; but, they also have something else – lack of other things to go wrong!
It's called "Minimalism," a photgraphic technique which is in fairly high demand commercially. The photographer merely focuses on one small key element and takes pains to make sure that the rest of the composition is completely clutter free.
Clean, simple, clear and uncluttered – it sort of rings a primeval 'bell' in our senses and makes us think: "I could do that." A link back to easier days before everything became a 'sound bite' and just another opportunity for an ad "impression."
And of course you recognize just why these types of images are so sought after by advertisers don't you? No competition for their message. Fear not, these are without advertising – I just like 'em.
[Remember, like always, these are full photographs so be patient while they load.]
