Have you ever tried your hand at abstract or experimental photography? If you haven’t, give it a try. It’s liberating!
Here are a few examples:
Here’s a link to more of my abstract-and-experimental photography. (for some reason, WordPress does not allow me to insert the code, hence, I can only provide the link)
But anyway…. You might ask what makes a photograph an “abstract” photograph. My two cents:
- a futuristic or fantasy feel or look
- includes elements of graphic design
- unique perspective (Point of View) – get really, really close…or not (for example, macro vs aerial shots)
- play with blur/Bokeh
- focus on specific details (part of getting really, really close, in a way), experiment with macro or texture, and so on
- play with shadows and make them the subject
- Lensbaby photography can help create unique abstract images; so does pinhole photography
- an abstract photograph could be a great wall art
Why give abstract/experimental photography a try? Because:
- it opens the eyes and mind to new possibilities
- it pushes a creative to think outside the box, and that’s a good thing
- it can be a “warm-up” exercise for another project, or for the muse 🙂
And so on.
Again, give it a try and see where it might lead your work.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
