Is there a specific name for this type of photos? Something more specific than abstract minimal photos. Where can I find more of these? (basically few plain colours, little to no textures, abstract, etc.)
Also, do you suggest any kind of camera settings for these kind of photos?

>This is where your bitterness goes.
What shots shouldn't be in the book?
There are stacks of bad photos in this year's book, and they'll stay there if you let them.
It's OK I guess, and this is what happens when you let a Brazilian committee make decisions for you, but the book really doesn't reflect the diversity of the subject matter we encounter here.
A lot of choices to cut or include shots seem to have been made arbitrarily, for "flow", or to keep only one page for a person.
This isn't a hate Iggy thread. He took on a project, solely for the benefit of the community, and did a bretty gud job.
It can be a hate Sugar thread, he only takes terrible photos, and somehow got 2 of them in the book :3

Hey, thought I'd start a thread on the first few things you should do when you first get a DSLR.
1. Learn technical jargon. If you aren't using the words "ISO," "Aperture," and "bokkeh," to everybody you meet within a week of unboxing your new Nikcanon 70D70 then you'll never make it as a videographer/photographer. However, you lose points if you actually manage to use any of these terms correctly.
2. Buy lenses without knowing that crop factor your camera is. Tell other photographers how happy you are with your 'nifty fifty,' not realizing that they're inwardly giggling at you because it's functionally an 80mm on your 1.6 crop factor canon.
3. Create a Facebook page. Use your last name and any combination of the following words: "Film, Media, Photography or Video." Bonus points for "Cinematography." Remember, now that you've got a DSLR, you're a professional photographer and can charge for your work, even if you've never shot anything professionally before or had any formal training.
4. Make sure you've got a watermark for all of your pictures. You never know when somebody will claim an overexposed headshot of an acquaintance of yours as their own!
5. Definitely take your camera everywhere, and make sure everybody sees you using your new DSLR. They'll be very impressed, and will definitely be excited to see your awkwardly framed and slightly blown out photos of them on facebook. Also, make sure you're using telephoto lenses to get extreme close-ups on peoples faces from medium distances. They'll be ecstatic to see every blemish and imperfection captured in stunning detail.
6. If you do video, constantly talk shit about everybody else's work and equipment, until you remember that you bought a mid-level Canon that can't shoot 60fps in 1080.
7. Talk about L-Series lenses as if you've ever used one for more than the 30 minutes somebody let you borrow it once.
Reminder: Images don't count unless you post them on facebook and tag the subject!
