Abstract Photography

abstract-photographyLike abstract art, abstract photography avoids symbolic representation, is based on the photographers eye and can produce very dramatic images. The subject of the abstract photo is often only a small part of the idea of the image. It relies on our more primal sense of form, color, and curves than it does on detail. Though examples of abstract photography can be found as early as the 1830s, it did not become a self-conscious form of image making until the early 20th century.

In abstract photography there are dimensions rarely seen in other media. Focus can add to the conceptual feel of abstracts by isolating parts of the subject through the use of blur. Line and curves are going to give your viewer something to base their new meaning on and add visual interest.

The abstract photographer uses his creative imagination to create stunning works of art. Form, color, and curves provide us with a great start to producing some impressive abstract photos. On the other hand, there is a lot more to explore about abstract photography.
