Shadows and Lines

Following on from last weeks post I have some more images which I originally tagged as abstract, however this time I believe they actually do belong in that category.

The images and their subjects are sufficiently far enough removed from their origins, that their use of, “shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect,” legitimize their categorization as abstract photographs.

The two images below show my interest in using shadows to arrive at a creative vision for the photograph. I generally spot meter for the lightest area and let the shadows take care of themselves. The contrast is then enhanced in post processing.

The final image is an abstract in colour. By isolating the side of the building, I created a balanced abstract picture, which also benefits from the textures and colours on the panels.
