Abstract Photography or what is is not

About This Group

I love it when a photographer takes an otherwise ordinary shot and transforms it into an image within an image, or a totally different take on \\\\\\\'reality.\\\\\\\'

The aim is to help the viewer gain an emotional, almost primeval link to the image.

There is no standard, universally accepted definition of abstract photography. But we could say: Abstract photography does not represent the subject in a literal way.
And it communicates primarily through form, color, and curves rather than image detail.

The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The focus is often only a small part of it. Viewers of an abstract shot may only know the essence of the abstraction or understand it by what is implied. Normally the object or image will not be a literal view of the subject. The subject tends to come second to seeing…

Nudity IS allowed on and nude images are generally considered \\\'work-safe\\\' as long as they are not too graphic. Please just use good judgment.
