I’ve been having fun playing with my photography this week, because I’m taking Kim Manley-Ort’s abstract photography class. We’ve been given the task of looking at the work of a list of abstract photographers this week and thinking about who inspires us. Today’s photos don’t really fulfill that assignment, as I’m still absorbing what I’ve looked at and thinking about what I’ve already been doing. I know I love black and white and minimalist photography (abstract or not), fluid and out of focus images (Lensbaby, ICM), and light and shadow play. I love taking detail shots, which may or may not be abstracts. Basically, I really like to play with my camera! And, yes, with the editing too!
Here are two sets of abstract shots, which I ended up placing in grids after some color play. No, this was not the assignment!
