February 17 Abstracts (Part 2)

In my previous post I shared 5 abstract photos from a 2014 February 17 photoshoot. Here are another 5 from that particularly creative and productive batch.


The Corner of My Eye


Blues Three


Brick and Blue Alley


Swimming in Blue


Urban Abstract 8636

As with most of my previous abstract photos, my basic technique is to use a long exposure (made possible by a neutral density filter) and then move the camera in a particular direction during the exposure. Post processing to emphasize color and contrast is usually also required.

Someday, I am looking forward to using some of these photographic imagesĀ  as inspiration, starting points for large paintings.


February 17 Abstracts

After a few months where cold weather made me less inclined to take my camera out, I did finally do so and concentrated on some long exposure with camera motion abstractions. After a bit of post-processing I came out with some images that I am very happy with:
