This post features a new minimalist black & white photography. I captured it last week when I was out shooting long exposures along the shores of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) in Switzerland. It features a fisherman at work on his boat on the lake and the silhouette of the French Alps. I shot this quite early in the morning when the lake was still very smooth. Contrary to what you might think, this time it is not a long exposure 😉
A Day at the Office, a fisherman on Lac LémanA fisherman at work on his boat on a misty Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) in Switzerland with the French Alps in the background.
For the fisherman, this was probably just another day at the office. For me, it was a very peaceful minimalist scene that I just had to capture. I knew upfront that I wanted to render it in black and white. This, because I wanted to emphasise the tranquillity and minimalist nature of the photograph. So, I hope you like minimalist B&W photography as I created here !?
I shot this with a Nikon D3x in combination with a Nikkor 24mm f/1.4 at ƒ/16, to make sure I would also get some detail in the mountains in the background. I used the following settings: 1/125s and ISO100.
