We love spreading the word about creatives whose work has caught our attention. We have also been through the essence of photography before. But if this is your first time reading our photography inspiration posts, the section below is worth reading. The focus this time is on abstract photography.
What is Photography?
Photography, the art of taking and processing photographs. A moment in time captured through a lens to preserve history, moments of our childhood, a decaying landscape or an endangered species. Not only for the delicate moments of our past or present, but we use photographs to cement the memory of truly epic moments. Be it the moon landing, a rare species or the most beautiful sunset ever witnessed. Photography capture what is unique to one person. A land we will never stand upon or sights we will never behold. A great photograph is the result of thoughtful decisions made behind the lens, not directly by the quality of equipment. It is your knowledge that will define the shot, not the device. Anybody with a camera can aspire to take beautiful photographs.
What is Abstract Photography?
“Since the world’s first photograph in the 19th century, artistic photographers have been experimenting with how a camera can be manipulated to give a different view of the world around us” – My Modern Met.
Abstraction is when the photographer focuses on an element, removing it from its context. When done right, abstract photography can turn a regular image into a new experience of colours patterns and textures. Sometimes you will be unable to identify the origin of the subject. Here is a selection of outstanding abstract photography.
