Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge – Abstract

Weekly Photography Challenge – Abstract

We tried the theme ‘Abstract’ once before, but didn’t get a whole lot of photos posted – let’s try it again, this time with vigour! (And a better description of ‘Abstract in Photography’ below!) Go out (or stay in!) and make an abstract photograph! Spill some milk on the floor and photograph the edge of it close up? Make a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects – most of all, have fun!

This is what Wikipedia gives me:

Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental or conceptual photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials. An abstract photograph may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer, it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression. The image may be produced using traditional photographic equipment like a camera, darkroom or computer, or it may be created without using a camera by directly manipulating film, paper or other photographic media, including digital presentations.”

As abstract as your ocean.

I guess this next photograph of mine is kinda landscape, but the mixed textures and maybe the framing make it slightly abstract, I’m not sure… All I do know is I class the photo above abstract (It’s the ocean, photographed by my little mini Hasselblad with props…
