Transcript of Copy of Abstract Photography

Abstract Photography Abstract Photographers Textures Abstract Shankar Adiseshan Sean Heavey Abstract photography is unlike most other types of photography - rules, such as composition and accurate focusing hold no values. The abstract photographer uses his creative imagination to create stunning works of art.
Abstract photography is a popular form of art and the rewards for a good abstract photographer are most worthwhile. Art buyers pay large amounts for good abstract work.
Abstract photography is a process of using colours and patterns combined to create an image, with no true meaning or no clear subject involved. Abstract photography is not necessarily going to mean the same thing to everyone. Abstract photography leaves more to the imagination and helps us concentrate on texture and colour rather than the whole subject.
If you are looking to try a new form of photography, abstract photography will certainly be an enjoyable challenge and very rewarding if you master the true art.
Creating an abstract image can be easy - creating a great abstract image is difficult. One of the most simple ways of creating an abstract image is by using water and your cameras' shutter combined. Shooting fast flowing water, with a slow shutter speed of one second will give you a blur effect. This is quite simple to do, but will it look attractive?
This will depend on light - shooting water with a slow shutter speed when the sun is low in the sky will give your image more attractive colours. Different films will also produce different colours. Adding colour filters will also improve your abstract photography. If you are using a digital camera, filters can be added later with Photoshop.
Using a slow shutter speed to shoot a flag blowing in the wind will also give you an abstract image. The trick to keeping abstract photography attractive when using your cameras' shutter is to crop tightly. Fill the view finder with the blur image.
Some kinds of macro photography can be considered as abstract. Closeups of flowers and other plant life will make great abstract subjects. As with shooting water - macro abstracts should be cropped tightly and the image should have a theme of colour. Some street lights can also create abstract photographs.
Every where we go we are surrounded with colour, textures and patterns. Patterns make for great abstract images. New patterns are formed by nature every day and this is the best place to start to create marketable abstract photographs.

The trick to keeping abstract photography attractive when using your cameras' shutter is to crop tightly
One of the most simple ways of creating an abstract image is by using water and your cameras' shutter combined. Shooting random drops of water might compose an abstract image. Shooting a fast flowing water with a slow shutter speed will give you a nice blur effect.
This is quite simple to do, but will it look attractive?

The answer will depend on light

If you are looking to try a new form of photography, abstract photography will certainly be an enjoyable challenge and very rewarding if you master the true art.


Creating an abstract image can be easy
Creating a great abstract image is difficult Much of the art of earlier cultures – signs and marks on pottery, textiles, and inscriptions and paintings on rock – were simple, geometric and linear forms which might have had a symbolic or decorative purpose. It is at this level of visual meaning that abstract art communicates.

One can enjoy the beauty of Chinese calligraphy or Islamic calligraphy without being able to read it Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.

Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality.

The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time. Some kinds of macro photography can be considered as abstract. Closeups of flowers and other plants or any other living creatures could be a great abstract subjects

Macro images should have a theme of color

Every where we go we are surrounded with colors, textures and patterns.

Patterns make for great abstract images. New patterns are formed by nature every day and this is the best place to start to create a remarkable abstract photographs. Abstract photography is not necessarily going to mean the same thing to everyone. It leaves more to the imagination and helps us concentrate on feelings rather than the meaning Using a slow shutter speed to shoot a moving object or moving the camera while shooting a still object might create an abstract image
