In both life and photography the simplicity is very important. Life simplification techniques can also easily apply to your photography. If you observe that most unsuccessful photographs fail because they are too complicated. The photographer is unable to tell his thoughts clearly, and the resulting photograph illustrates his uncertainty and lack of direction.

Here in photography the simplicity will apply for both compositionally and subjectively. Simplicity is nothing but eliminate the unnecessary things, so the main subject will speak more. The frame should be more clean, minimal and simple.
