2022 Photography Ideas #11 Practice Abstract Photography

One of the good things about abstract photography is that the subject is that you don’t need to go anywhere fancy to practice it.

Please share the love 

Like macro photography, it’s possible to take good abstract photos almost anywhere – you just need to look at the world in a less literal way. Abstract photos are not “of” anything aside from light, shapes, and color. That’s what makes them so flexible.

Here are a few dew droplets on the bonnet of a car shortly before sunrise, with a streetlight reflecting on it. Those are subjects many of us pass by each day – a car and a lamp – but photos like this hide in plain sight. I’ve taken abstract photos of plants in my backyard or textures in rock formations. If you look hard enough, you’ll find good abstract photos almost anywhere.
