Learn by Doing Photography #31 Abstract Photography

What is abstract photography? There are lots of definitions for the term abstract photography. To me it means using colors, textures and patterns together to create an interesting image. You don’t necessarily have to have a subject or follow any rules. It’s you, the camera and your imagination.

So this week there is nothing to hold you back, no rules. Think outside the box and find something that interests you. When you see it take a step closer and closer until you really see what you’re looking at. Look for shadows, contrast, colors, patterns whatever you find interesting.


This a very long video, but there are some really good tips. Jump ahead to 3:33 – 7:00 to get to some of those great tips. James Beltz goes out on the street and shows you what he looks for and how exactly he does it.
