Inspiration: Ciro Totku

Some photographers have a talent for seeing the beauty in simple things. Ciro Totku, originally from Moscow, lives and works in Cambodia. He uses minimal equipment and relies on natural/available light.

I don’t want to say that doing this sort of photography is easy. It is, yet it isn’t. But minimal, abstract photography is definitely very doable for a novice or for someone lacking gear.

Look for simple colors and a splash of an accent

Or leading lines to control where your eyes go.
