GO ABSTRACT! Photography Night with Hedon Viewfinders

GO ABSTRACT!

OUR ‘GO ABSTRACT!’ NIGHT will encourage participants to look at the world slightly differently. It involves trying to create images that are unusual, unique or require a personal interpretation from the photographer or viewer in order to enjoy them.

Composition, colour, texture, shape, form, light and shadow are some of the considerations for creating a good photograph of something. However, in abstract photography, those considerations are more important than the actual subjects or objects. Abstract photography has often been described as conceptual or photography that expresses how you feel emotionally about something. Whilst the ‘rules’ of photography apply, abstract photography will quite often break those rules to create images that are different or unique.

There is no formally accepted definition of abstract photography. Rather it’s a personal way of ‘seeing’ photography. We can practice this and attempt to improve our creative eye – and that is what we will be doing on Wednesday.

A collection of reference materials on abstract photography is available here: Wakelet Abstract Photography.

The resulting images from abstract photography can make fantastic prints and wall artworks that are unique. Indeed, abstract photography will be one of the components of Hedon Viewfinder’s exhibition in the spring of 2023.
