Photo Quest July 2021: Simplicity & Minimalism

The month of July has arrived and summer is in full swing — time for another photo quest! In these hot and sultry days, we don’t want to put too much burden on ourselves when we chase new images, and so we’re looking for photos that express

Simplicy & Minimalism.

As usual, we don’t want to influence your creativity but in case you want a primer on what minimalism in photography might mean, here are some articles that you can read: Learn the key components to minimalist photography (Adobe) — 40 Minimalist Photography Examples For Your InspirationMinimalism in Photography: The Good and Bad.


  • MAKE A NEW PHOTO for the quest – no digging in the archives!
  • Your photo MUST be made between now and July 31st, 2021
  • This is a members only activity (a link to submit your photo will be in your email inbox)
  • Only one submission per member, please.
  • PLEASE give your submission a descriptive filename and/or add add title & caption via IPTC fields
    (put your name & title of your image into the IPTC caption!)
  • Color, black & white, DSLR, mirrorless, phone… doesn’t matter, but please…
  • no digital art/compositing

We expect technically solid photography without obvious flaws (take care of accurate focus & sharpness, proper exposure, balanced composition, keep your work free from digital processing artifacts like halos, sensor dust, etc.).

Have fun, but also take pride in your work!
