In the last year or so I have started experimenting with methods to produce abstract images, some of which lose their photographic identity and cross over into graphic design like the one above. Others, like those below, retain their photographic quality but in them I alter light and color to various effect.
I find this process particularly engaging. While I approach the subject’s composition as with any other photograph, I have no idea of where the color manipulation will end up, that happens in post processing of the image. This photograph below of cuttings from a palm tree is a good example, I really had no idea where it was going, but I was thrilled by where it ended up.
