General Points
 
Abstract photography can be said to be a means of showing a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world. Nearly all subject matter can be explored to deliver an abstract image.
 
The photographer’s eye plays a large part in abstract photography. The
photographer looks to capture something in a way that it would not usually be seen.
 
Abstract images can reveal for example: details, lines, patterns, shapes, form, texture and colours.
 
Some opportunities for abstract images to name a few: light painting, shadows, reflections, architecture, peeling paint, interesting patterns, blurry trees, close-up patterns in nature.
