My early love for abstract art was one of my primary reasons for picking up a camera in the first place. With my first camera some years ago, I immediately set out upon this wonderful world to capture and catalog what I found spoke to me in this language. I fully encourage everyone and anyone, no matter how long you have been involved in your craft, to go out and look for hidden abstractions or ones in plain sight. It takes a little practice to find what works and what doesn’t and actually requires much more thought than you would think, just like any other type of photography.
Interestingly enough, I find that I don’t shoot abstractly as much as I would like to these days but when I find a piece that warrants my attention, I jump at the chance. Hopefully with my newest camera, the Fuji X100, I will be inclined to do more work again of this type. I just got so tired of lugging around my full frame every day.
Feel free to leave me any comments or thoughts on these pieces. They are fun to dissect and discuss.
