Dancing Flowers – 4 – Photography as Abstract

With the wonderful response to my last dancing flowers post (see here, here and here for the first three photos/posts), I went out last week and tried doing some more of these movement photos of flowers. I got some rather wonderful results, and this one is my favorite.

What I truly love is the different levels of depth in this photo, and how it looks like there is movement in two different directions. I like the look of glass that’s there also and the way the photo goes from light to dark. I honestly don’t know how or why some of those things happened (I have suspicions though), but I’m going to see if I can replicate those attributes in future photos. (: As someone noted on my last dancing photos post, it looks more like a painting, which I enjoy.

This photo was taken with my Nikon 105mm macro at f/32 and at a shutter speed of 1/8. I turned the camera as I clicked the shutter release. As always, let me know what you think of this one. And again, I truly appreciate the feedback from all of you!

  5. It’s hard to tell that these are flowers. Wonderful work 🙂

  6. Lovely image Katie. It inspires me to post some of my abstract flower images. And, like you, it’s a subject I enjoy for the wonderful surprises that come, as well as for the painterly feel these images have.

  7. Looks like fire…. like ‘elegant fire’, if there is such a thing… 🙂

  8. It really gives the dancing image, wonderful photograph. This is dancing of colours too 🙂 Thank you dear Katie, with my love, nia
