52 Frames: Week 20: Abstract !

It’s time to put on your creative in hats 👩‍🎨 and take some Abstract images. Photography that makes use of patterns, textures, blur and often enough indistinct shapes – all to convey emotions or to share a narrative.

I did have fun with this one, you will unwillingly be subjected to several posts from my attempt to capture abstract, I shot around 170 frames and trying to find something different or more odd was difficult as I was drawn to certain look and tried to avoid the obvious

Think about focusing on colors and shapes, rather than concentrating on getting technical details like focus and depth of field. There’s absolutely NO right and wrong – it’s all subjective and open to what you – the photographer – wants their viewer to feel.Abstract photography is all about form, color and texture coupled with uncommon viewing angles. Get low, look at the undersides of things, go in close to grab some texture, use bubbles and liquid drops to make random patterns of light and color. Experiment and feel free to mix genres and techniques to create some absolutely amazing shots.

Look at playing around with blur, movement or something that looks different from what you’re trying to portray – yeah, that’s a tough nut to crack but if your viewer can turn to you and ask – “Wow! Great shot… what is it?” – yep, you’ve hit the brief.

Black and White Wednesday ~ old house

This house is very old.
Yet, it stands so gracefully.
If the walls could only talk.
I bet they’d have a lot to say.

It holds a lot of memories,
buried deep inside.
It seems to stand with attitude,
as if it carries pride.

It stands upon the foundation,
seeming to claim the land.
Refusing to wither from age
with a little help from my man.

Not one room, is a favorite,
each displays a special touch.
It might be old but, we don’t mind.
We love it very much.

MakroTex – Sight (näkö)

Makrotex asked to photograph sight (näkö) a touch one. I see the world through these eyes, my eyesight is getting worse all the time, so my art and paintings are becoming more impressionist as time goes by or abstract. My photos I try to keep sharp and focused.
