As a lover of patterns it’s no surprise that I’ve developed an interest in taking abstract photographs. It’s usually images of textures and patterns taken in spur of the moment with my phone before they end up on instagram. That’s why I’ve come to associate the abstract photos with spontaneity, I can rarely plan a photoshoot in advance. Maybe that will change as I experiment more and take more images.
These images were taken with my dslr but the process was spontaneous non the less. They were taken on an unusually sunny March morning when the sun was so strong it was creating really sharp shadows. I happened to have some glass items on the table and the morning free to experiment. I love how from some angles the images look like ink or charcoal drawings. Do you agree? Or what do you see?
I have a lot of glass items at home (more on that in another post) and I really liked playing with shadows, so I think I’ll explore this theme a little bit more. I’m also tempted to manipulate experiment with these images in photoshop. Stay tuned for part 2 of the Shadow Studies.
I love making mood boards. So much so I’ve sometimes wondered if mood board maker could be a full time job. I would maybe get tired of it though. I usually prefer making my mood boards like my collages, by hand from old magazines. But lately I’ve been testing doing them in photoshop and I thought I’d share some of them with you. I still haven’t settled for one layout, I want to try out different ones for a while. I hope you find them inspiring.
