OBJECTIVES: There are a lot of different definitions of abstract art. For this project we will consider abstract photography something that is based on a real object, but your depiction of the object generally emphasizes line, color, shape, geometrical forms, and their relationship to one another instead of a realistic representation of the object itself. Getting in close will help. If someone glances at your finished image it should not be easy for them to identify the subject.
PROCEDURES: Do some research. Google abstract photography. Look at the samples you find. Go out and create your own images. Experiment with different positions and angles. The more you experiment the better your images will be. At first glance the viewer should not be able to identify the object, subject, location, etc. You can not take pictures of paintings, drawings, prints on material, etc. Like all assignments, you have to take at least 30 pictures.
TURN IN: 3 - 4x6, 6x4, 5x7, 7x5, 8x10,10x8, or 10x10 native resolution (leave the resolution box blank when using the crop tool) abstract images. The pictures don't all have to be cropped the same size.
