I’m going back in my archives to 2011 (November 25) for these never-before-presented camera-motion abstract photos:
In Part 1, I shared 5 abstract photo images, taken in the Edmonton river valley on a beautiful spring day in May of 2013. Here area few more images conveying the color and lines of spring:
In the depths of a dull November day I reached back in my photos archives for some memories of spring to brighten my mood.
I found some photos from May 20th of 2013 that captured the light, mood and color of spring. After tweaking these camera-motion abstract photos a bit, these are the images that I came up with:
Watch for more abstract photo images from this day in Spring Revisited (Part 2).
I love the media of pastel – for the rich color and soft shapes that can be depicted. Autumn is a great time to be inspired by the natural landscape, to find images particularly suited to pastels:
Those people familiar with my work probably correctly guessed that the images above are not pastel works but rather are abstract photos that I took and created, with the intent of using them as reference images for future pastel paintings.
Here are a selection of my favorite photos taken on September 30, 2018 in Edmonton’s river valley.
My last two posts on this blog have featured abstract photos, and black and white photos, that I took in Edmonton’s river valley on September 17th, 2018. In this post I conclude sharing some more photos from that same photo session. These ones though are a bit more typical of most people’s expectation of colorful fall photos:
The season known for its expressive color also has a beauty in a black and white expression. Here are photos taken in the river valley of Edmonton in early September 2018.
Here are some of my recent (September 2018) abstract photographs:
These photos were created by using a shutter speed of around 1.5 seconds and moving the camera during the exposure. I then tweaked the digital images (contrast, color saturation, cropping etc.) using Lightroom.
I hope to use some of these images as inspiration for paintings.
It is the end of January and the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton is frozen over and covered with 15 centimeters of fresh snow. I venture to the river’s edge and am captivated by the abstract forms that I see:
This morning, I was looking through my old photos, curious as to what I might have been looking at, taking photos of, on this day in past years. As it turns out I hadn’t been very active on January Thirteenths, but I did find some from 2012. In fact, I quite liked what I was doing that year – it was a bit of a treasure chest of abstract images!
I took a number of those photos, tweaked and cropped them to come up with these final images (which I like and hope you will too):
