ABSTRACTIONS

Our cameras do an amazing job telling stories about the world. They can also capture abstract designs when we’re lucky.  An abstract photograph can involve color, light, shadow, texture, shape and form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression. This can be done by isolating a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove the context or it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance.
