Set Subject: Abstract

Abstract photography is the expression of ideas and emotions by using elements such as colours, lines, shapes and textures without attempting to create a realistic picture – any subject, no matter how ordinary, can become abstract depending on the way it is photographed.

More often than not what you leave out is just as important as what you leave in.

There are no rules about composition or framing – it all comes down to you, your view and what you find interesting or beautiful – you are only limited by your vision and ideas.

Ways to get started:

  • Choose strong shapes
  • Get up close
  • Use colour to grab attention
  • Seek out texture
  • Look for repeating patterns
  • Use lines and curves
  • Photograph reflections
  • Shoot through another object
  • Capture shadow
  • Blur your images
