We would like to invite you to our new:
Customer Homework Challenge.
Third Thursday, every month,
- We will give a you subject to shoot, and once a month we will to get together
in our classroom.
- A different ‘assignment’ will be given each time.
- We will compare ideas, share techniques and maybe have a little pizza!!!
- Images can be presented printed, or brought in on memory card or thumb drive.
- Each week the group will vote a group ‘fav', and that winner
will receive a gift from Camera Land.
Bring in one of you favorite abstract images, and let’s compare.
There is so much to learn looking at each other’s work, and exchanging
creative ideas and techniques.
Like abstract art, abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, color,
pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object.
The subject of the photo is often only a small part of the idea of the
image. Viewers may only know the essence of the image subject or understand
it by what is implied.
Often the image will not be a literal view of the subject itself.
In abstract photography there are dimensions rarely seen in other media.
For example, Focus can add to the conceptual feel of abstracts by isolating
parts of the subject through the use of blur.
For the viewer, abstract photography is not about knowing and recognizing
the subject. It is more about emotionally connecting with it.
