This week’s theme includes photos that are abstracted from the actual physical object …..let us appreciate the art involved in the shot. It can be a macro, but it doesn’t have to be … since we did macros this last week, let’s see if we can move into new territory this week. How else to abstract? Use post processing. Shoot from weird angles. Shoot in weird light. Shoot photos that are meant to represent something else. Shoot using unusual lenses. And others you may think of. I’ve tried to illustrate with a few of my past shots below. And just to make it more interesting, let’s refrain from showing the same shot in B&W and Color …. let’s choose the color scheme we think “makes” the abstract and show only it.
Black and White Normal Lens Abstract
Tele Shot - Shape / Form / Color Abstraction
As usual the shoot will run from 12:00am (midnight) on Wednesday the 24th for seven days, until 11:59pm on Thursday the 30th.. If you are shooting film, you may shoot a week in advance or post after the close, but otherwise we will shoot and post within that time frame.
Also as usual, please limit yourself to no more than three photos in a post, no more than 1100 pixels on the long side. But also as usual you may post more than once. And again as usual offer your comments on other’s work.
I’m looking forward to seeing what we all come up with. Good shooting!
