I’ve started a year-long course in creative photography with Lori Lankford. The course is designed to expand my photographic vision and stimulate me to take new approaches to creativity. The class is conducted on-line, with participants sharing their work and offering helpful comments on the postings.
Each month we will have a new theme. Lori provides guidance for approaching that theme, along with inspirational materials to stimulate us.
The theme for January was abstracts. Three subjects were suggested for creating abstract art through photography:
- Natural elements
- Household objects
- Reflections of light through glass
Lori stresses several elements that go to make up successful abstract photos:
- Angle of View
- Shape, Texture, Line and Form
I had a lot of fun with these themes, and here I share some of the work I created. I hope you find it enjoyable and I look forward to your thoughts about these images. As you can see, I had the most fun, and I think success, with the third theme–capturing the lines and colors of light as it passes through glass of different hues.
