Like most photographers, I look for subjects that will allow me to create “interesting” images. As such, I find that abstract constructs offer unique opportunities to practice balancing light, shadow, form, & color in a creative way. But, I’ve gotta admit…one persons “creative” abstract is another person’s example of a really shitty photo. 😳
So, let’s just say, like many things…abstracts are subjective. My approach is to shoot what appeals to me and let the chips (o.p.o.*) fall where they may. The subject at hand initially appealed to my love of stark light and deep shadows. A minute later I realized that the structure also had fascinating textures varying from soft to hard. Ya know, sometimes focusing on a subject and shooting it from various vantage points is really gratifying. Of course you do. This was one of those times.
Is the outcome interesting? Sure… to me. Is it a successfully executed creative exercise? I’ll let you be the judge.
Please, check out the images and leave a comment to let me know where your chips fell.
