Abstract

Abstract

November 10, 2021

Should express ideas and emotions in a photographed image without the intention of creating a traditional or realistic image. While many commonly observed photography rules don’t apply, a good abstract photo always has a clear, structural design. Much thought goes into the order, placement, and balance between shapes, patterns, textures, and colors within an abstract image.

Patterns

Patterns

June 9, 2021

Our eyes are predisposed to recognizing patterns. When we capture a repetition, it can create a powerful image. To create even more interest, offer up that pattern, make it prominent, but you may somehow break the repetition.

Collection

Collection

Symmetry

Symmetry

April 14, 2021

Our eyes are naturally drawn to things that are symmetrical. A composition with two equal or close to parts does seem to conflict with the rule of thirds. If you’re going to break a rule, be sure and shatter it. Must be from a single in-camera exposure- no flipped post processing.
