Create interesting silhouettes by backlighting your portraits, OR by creating interesting light shapes!


Use double-sided tape to let you create some unique angles with your props, or simply create some imprints in a tray full of flour for some snow-like aerial shots.

Simple Forms

Symmetry can be found everywhere! Simply walk around your home to find some unique shapes and shadows. Play with under/overexposing your shots for added effect.


Find bright colors or complementary colors to illuminate and isolate for some interesting minimalistic fine art.

Empty Space

This is a personal favorite of mine, find an object to shoot against the same or similar color, or something to show off the color contrast, like a tree against the white sky or a simple white chair in the snow!

Lights in the Dark

Expose for the lighting in your home or outside to create some interesting and moody minimalistic images
