Yellow Icy Flower 2013: From the street into the abstract world
Planting Fields Arboretum, Oyster Bay NY
Hi there. I am going to change the course for a bit – from street photography to abstract photographs. I’ll come back with street photography shortly. Or, if you like this course, we can stick with it for a longer time.
My work consists of street photography and abstracts. You have seen the abstracts that happen in the street: the thing in front of you, the architecture, the geometry, the big picture.
I had also worked at the macro level for a few years, and I’d like to showcase my macro abstract #photographs. I was interested in finding abstract images, painting-like images. I did.
It helped me with developing or improving a certain set of skills: spotting forms and geometry, seeing the beauty within an unexpected setting; seeing the light and the color. I started to see the image (I even looked on walls with a magnifier glass!); I mixed paints to learn the difference between colors, the harmony, and their relationship. I used different lenses to see different results in making the photograph. Finally, the processing of the image in Photoshop or Lightroom changes sometimes until it’s final.
I worked with abstracts for a couple of years, and I would love that work to come out of the dust, into the light. I wouldn’t want it to be lost.
Some of you might not be interested in the macro abstract world. I’d say, hang in there for awhile, please. I appreciate it. Or, if you like to talk about something of common interest, let me know. Aww, I’m trying to keep you involved in my work. 🙂
Thanks for your support and patience. It’s been important to me.
