Nikon D5000, AF-S 18-105 VR, 1/30 s, 105 mm, f/16, ISO 200. It really is a rotating ring. Neon lights in a-room made ripple effect. I got the concept whenever my girlfriend ended up being playing with her ring. We shot it first at a dinner to exhibit my pal that I am able to make good photography in a bad light problem without his f/1.8 lens. I re-shot it On a white work desk and much more light. It turned-out well enough to publish.

Then I bought a new camera to change my old EOS 350D and began to do some tryout shots on our balcony. And all of a sudden i discovered my abstract motive. It's a wind chime.

Panasonic DMC-FZ30 on my tripod, ISO80, publicity 1/10, F2.8. Really, I happened to be wandering within my home after reading your article in the picture competition.

It absolutely was so simple, the perfect solution is was right within my face. Therefore yes, we took many macro pictures of the pixels of my tv when it was on, I posterized it to see the pixel, boosted the colors and voila!

Reach Out and Touch Some One
Canon EOS XTi, 50mm, 1/60 sec @ f20 ISO 100. This abstract is all about the outlines together with unfavorable space rather than the obscurity of focal point. You need to look through the concept of it becoming an image of a telephone pole and view the forms.

We cleaned the end quickly and damp it so that it would mirror light better. We utilized the flashlight (ridiculously bright) to illuminate the bottom between the digital camera in addition to automobile so the diffuse jump won't illuminate the vehicle much, however the wet fatigue tip would mirror round the exterior ring. We used the exposure in manual mode to fully capture simply the ring.
[Ed note: I like that, from one of mankind's many impressive, polished inventions—the automobile—we get very fundamental however fundamental forms: the circle.]
Awesome entries all around. And even though many nonetheless claim not to comprehend the idea of abstract art—indeed, the concept itself is quite abstract—I think that many of your entries delved boldly into the vast category, albeit in various methods. In addition, if you're nevertheless shopping for a definition to cause you to satisfied with the word, I found this essay on abstract art that i discovered becoming quite great. Obviously, it could simply connect much more knots within brain. But that is type of the fun of it, right?
