Concept of Simplicity

posted on 7th of october, 2012

One of my favorite concept is: SIMPLICITY. Keep it - stupidly - simple. Of course, such photos will never get an award nor will be accepted for assignment. They are neither first class nor fine art nor really charming. But they are useful.

Here are a few - very simple - photos which all got sales, even my rusty railway track and my snow powdered roof:

You're right, simplicity sells.

yes from the sales point you are totally right - I find the over the clouds really special and the Pizza looks simply delicious! - when looking at your latest uploads of the Maibaum I start feeling a bit homesick :) simple - but for some people very special!

Hello Joerg, in my opinion the concept of simplicity is paradoxically complex, because you have a very clear vision of objects in their details. Simplicity is immediate communication of a need, a desire, and certainly satisfies the search for buyers, as indicated by the number of sales. Greetings and congratulations for having pointed out this useful photographic concept!

The combination of the fitting keywords and a simplicity concept are perhaps the necessary elements required in a deadly combo.

What you said is true. In fact I think often designers needs more shots that contain very simple concepts for building an image whose content is more complex.

Anyone who needs one or two photos of the structires or items can easily find them here in stock instead of hiring a photogrpaher, going down to the spot and take the photos you need. Saves a lot of time, cost and the trouble.

It is so true. I will take more stupidly simple ones!
