What is abstract photography? Also known as conceptual, experimental or non-objective photography, it’s difficult to sum up with a single definition. Lines, textures, patterns, colours and all types of graphic qualities can be used to create an image that doesn’t aim to illustrate reality but form a unique image from conventional subject matter. You may hardly, if at all, make a connection between an abstract photograph and the object world, but that’s why it can be so mesmerising -- anything can become a magnificent piece of art.
Shift your focus away from usual perspectives, observe the world, and concentrate on components with a macro lens. Sounds tricky? Here are some tips for recognising abstract photography opportunities.
