Abstract 81 is underway

July 4th, 2024
Many thanks to Ann @olivetreeann for hosting the last round and to all those who participated. Thanks also to all who took the time to view and vote for the finalists. It is my honour to host this next round

Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental or conceptual photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials. An abstract photograph may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer, it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression.

Some tips that have been mentioned before may help you capture or create an interesting abstract:

Shoot the ordinary in an unusual way
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

And will end on Wednesday, July 31, 2024
