New abstract challenge is underway

July 5th, 2022
Many thanks to Renee @rensala for hosting Abstract 65. I am honoured to have my macro image of a dandelion chosen and thanks to all who entered and to those who voted. Now on to Abstract 66.

This challenge is all about seeing abstract in the real world. Don’t worry about getting it right. Abstract photography should be a place of complete freedom. And this is why the most important "quality" for abstract photography is just your imagination and creativity!

So how do you create an abstract image and make really amazing abstracts? Here are some tips:

Shoot the ordinary.
Choose strong shapes.
Get up close.
Use color to grab attention.
Seek out texture.
Look for repeating patterns.
Use lines and curves.
Photograph reflections.
Shoot through another object.
Capture motion.
Go macro.

You may find some inspiration in these lovely images:

Start Date: July 1 (backdated)
End Date: July 31
Tag: abstract-66

Any photos taken in that time frame are eligible. Enter as many photos as you wish, but only one image per photographer will be shortlisted.

I am looking forward to seeing some imaginative images. Have fun!
