The Essence of Shells

I love my abstract photography class! I am finding that the kind of photography I love to do the most (besides grand-boy photography, of course)- macros and closeups with a shallow depth of field- fall into the abstract photography realm. I had no idea! This week I’ve been photographing some of my shells with the intention of exploring their essence- and also their un-seashellness!

  1. Yes, this is a really great class, one I enjoyed very much. Who knew? Your shells make a marvelous subject to explore the essence, and make abstract images. Each one is just beautiful Melinda!
