This month’s assignment is going to be a lot of fun. Abstract Photography, I am guessing, means something different to each of us. Being me, I needed a definition to wrap my creative mind around and found one (see the photo caption below) which will help me in this assignment. If anyone has other definitions or ideas, add them to the comments, I would really like to read them.
I am going to be very loose on this assignment. In camera or in post, create your abstract photos any way you want. Let your imagination go and show us what you got!
I want to thank Isa of Isathreadsoflife’s Blog for suggesting this assignment to me. It would not be something I would have considered otherwise.
This month, I will be giving away a copy to an assignment participant of Nature & Outdoor Photography by Brenda Tharp which delves into finding abstract compositions in nature among its chapters.
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr, Google+ or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Abstract photos.
Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time zone), Wednesday, March 21, 2012. Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr. As I have done for all the Assignments, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. With the addition of the book prize, I would doubly appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, Tweet it, FaceBook it, Google+ it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends and family. Thank you!
