I like taking abstract photographs. The individual’s visualisation of something on which they are laying their own interpretation is both gratifying and exciting.
There is always the risk of course that someone may not be able to see what it is you are trying to pull out of an object or a scene, but to a certain extent that is the case with all forms of art. It is as individual as the person making it.
The first two images here were taken at the Coventry Motor Museum. I got in very close and as the images were hand-held, they were at a low shutter speed and a high ISO. Nevertheless, I like what I got out of the images and I think they work successfully as abstract and minimalist expressions.
They were taken with a Nikon D800 and a 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 lens at an ISO of 3200
The final picture is a re-take of an image I took a while ago again at the Motor Museum. This photograph has always sold quite well for me but I suppose it helps to be in the city that Jaguar Land Rover continues to build. The original image had been taken with an Olympus E-series camera and I wanted to see what the result could be with a camera such as the D800, which has a much better ISO capability in low light. The noise level in the resultant picture with the Nikon was much lower and required a lot less noise reduction.
