I find great liberty and therapy in shooting abstract photographs. It’s a personal mission. I don’t have to implicitly communicate a clear idea or visual norm. Instead, I’m pushing myself – getting my eyes and mind to work together to see forms without classifying them first. I find it to be a fun exercise that always brings great personal satisfaction.
Sure, there are some throwaways, but I think that the keepers are fantastic.
What fuels this fire?
It’s easy to get stuck when venturing to shoot abstracts. Sometimes I lean on the following when I need to regain focus.
- Surfaces & Textures
- Reflections & Refractions
- Strong Light & Shadow
- Motion & Depth
