Week Six: Abstract

February 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

6/52: The abstract art form can be described as an artist's implied interpretation of the world using form, color, line, tone, and texture. This week's assignment or challenge is to create an image that best represents elements of our environment in the form of abstract expression. The image should not be the literal or complete interpretation of the subject. It should be left to the imagination of the viewer to fill in the blanks. Typically, most abstract images leave the viewer trying to figure out exactly what it is they are viewing. Is this always the case, absolutely not. It is up to the artist to figure out the best way to represent their subject. Some subjects lend themselves better to an almost macro-type image, while others a technique such as shutter drag, whip-panning, or zoom/motion blur are better options.

TIP: No ground breaking, or earth shattering tips this week. Abstract photography is a genre I typically don't venture into too much. Turn your imagination and creativity loose, and have fun!
