25 Brilliant Examples of Abstract Photography

Departure From The Norm//+

 

Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum.


Kadinsky Abstract Art
Even art that aims for verisimilitude of the highest degree can be said to be abstract, at least theoretically, since perfect representation is likely to be exceedingly elusive. Artwork which takes liberties, altering for instance color and form in ways that are conspicuous, can be said to be partially abstract. Total abstraction bears no trace of any reference to anything recognizable.

The Abstract art form uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non-figurative art, non-objective art, and non-representational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, although perhaps not of identical meaning.

When it comes to Abstract Photography, creating an abstract image can be easy – creating a great abstract image is difficult. One of the most simple ways of creating an abstract image is by using water and your cameras’ shutter combined. Shooting fast flowing water, with a slow shutter speed of one second will give you a blur effect.

The final outcome of the image will solely depend upon light – as when, shooting water with a slow shutter speed when the sun is low in the sky will give your image more attractive colors for example. Different films will also produce different colors. Adding color filters will also improve your abstract photography.

If you are using a digital camera, filters can be added later with Photoshop. Similar to Abstract Art, Abstract photography is not necessarily going to mean the same thing to everyone, since beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this basically applies to nearly everything in life. Abstract photography leaves more to the imagination and helps us concentrate or focus our attention on texture and colour rather than the entire subject. Below are some creative examples of the Abstract Photography, we hope they will inspire you to grab your camera and venture onto creating your own personal Abstract masterpieces !
