When taking these pictures I wanted to capture the banality of everyday life. Something very boring and very simple to create quiet and minimal images. As you can see there is my partner’s butt , some water under my plant , laundry and a coffee stain on my mug.
- Think about banality , something that isn’t amazing to start with. How can you frame it to bring poetry to your image.
- Try to separate your objects from the background . Place a card behind it or hang a cloth.
- If shooting with a DSLR try to use wider aperture to soften the background.
- Experiment with exposure time.
