Tuesday evening Kathy gave us a talk of abstract photography and there are various types that fit into that category, some showing texture and others cropped just to give a hint of the subject chosen. One can even create an abstract photograph by purposely moving the camera up or down or left to right.
This is sand really close up
This is a coastal scene photographed with movement of the camera
Cropping a picture of just sail masts
These are just purple shadows created on a blue vase
Bridges can make nice shapes
This is a reflection in a swimming pool in glass panels. The large panels of glass can create shapes
This is a sunset moving the camera downwards
This is a pattern created from the floor looking up at palm trees
These are shadows making patterns in a conservatory
These are reflections taken on the canal side
This is a glass ball placed in front of a computer showing different colours
This was taken in the Tate Gallery and the shape with inks layered on top
This is Waddesdon Manor where Kathy zoomed in her lens at various stop points
Trees with the movement of the camera
Again reflections of a building in glass
more reflections with the glass windows getting smaller as the width disappears into the distance below
shapes created in water
This shot was an accident with a slow shutter speed and Kathy quite like it
These are reflections in the windows of a building
Shadows create these diagonals with a part of a cycle left on purpose for suggestion in the top right hand corner
This is a decaying shed roof with leaves
Shapes are all around us
This is a sort of periscope on the top of some cliffs showing the rocks below. Because the light was so bad inside the scope Kathy had to take several pictures with different exposures and blend them together in software
An underground tunnel where Kathy waited for other people to clear
A reflected column in the place above
Kathy would like us to go out and look around and notice the unusual and take some picture to show the club on a later date.
a Christmas tree reflection in the water
light painting photography
ink droplets in water
tree reflections turned upside down
shadows with just the hint of the shoes above, similar to the cycle shadows
So now from these examples go out and take lots of photographs and then pick your best three for a club talk.
