Guides to Minimalism in PhotographyThis 37 minute tutorial on minimalist photography is suitable for all levels of photographers, from beginner to pro. Learn how to create striking images that communicate the essence of your subject and the feelings you had when you took the shot.
Here is my suggestion for 5 steps you can take to create minimalist landscape photography. Minimalism is a fascinating subgenre of photography, where you can create some incredible photos by using very few elements. I also give an introduction to what minimalism is in a historic context and how it is used in contemporary photography.

Information about submission to the group
Members can submit one (1) deviation per week to the Current Submissions folder. Contributors can submit twice (2) per week – all are automatically approved.
To maintain a reasonably high quality standard, we ask you to pay close attention to basic issues like Focus, Exposure, Composition, Colors, Lighting, Contrast, Extent of Digital Noise, White Balance, etc before you submit your work. We reserve the right to remove submissions that doesn't meet those quality standards.
The artist/member retains all the Copyright of submitted Artwork. Please submit only your work and respect the copyright of other artists.
Image size: We will encourage you to post at least 900px on the longer side. Anything smaller may be declined.
We highly encourage you to leave EXIF information intact in the submissions, but if that is not possible due to any reason, please add camera, lens and exposure information in the description of the image. It helps admins to make decision and also helps other members learn from your image.
Composites will be accepted, but each case will be reviewed on individual basis.
HDR, Exposure Blending, Focus Stacking, Panoramas, Digital Overlays and Selective Coloring is accepted, but the resulting image should still meet the quality standards. Photo Manipulations are accepted too, provided all elements used are of photographic origin and taken by you. No graphics or texts please!
Limit the submission to One or Two from a series. It is easy to get carried away with digital photography and click way too many images of the similar and/or same subject. Avoid submitting similar images and pick the best ones to submit in order to maintain the variety in the gallery.
Images taken with cell phone camera will now be accepted, provided it meets other quality guidelines.
The following are NOT accepted at this time (may change in future) :
Images with big and intrusive watermarks (including the DA watermark) will be declined. We suggest that you use your own signature/name as a watermark, but keep in mind that they should not overpower the image.
Blurry/out-of-focus/soft images will not be accepted.
Over processed/heavily manipulated images will not be accepted.
Nudes, fetish, Digital Art, Mixed Media, Horror/Macabre, religious or political agenda, Obscene and hate-related work will NOT be accepted. Any work that is not acceptable to DA will also be declined.
Images which are of snapshot quality will also be declined.
Once again, I would like to remind all members that "We aim to keep the image quality high in this group, so please submit only your best works. Images that do not meet our submission guidelines will be declined ."
Thank you and welcome again.
