Photography as Abstract – Lines this Way and that with Shadows and Light
Ryan over at the Lifeasgood blog (he has a talent for writing haiku that so simply and poetically captures life, and he also does some wonderful mythic art) recently said he loved my experiments in abstracts, so I thought I’d post another one.
This is a different take on the same subject that I posted a while ago here. People really liked that one, so I decided to post another one taken with different camera movement to show how you can get different effects.
As with the last one, this is a simple photo with a fence, greenery and the house in the background. I liked the other one, but this one intrigues me also. Instead of an upward motion with the camera, I moved the camera diagonally. This gave the photo diagonal lines, but kept the vertical and horizontal lines of the wooden fence. The shadow and light play are interesting and I love the greenery and fall colors too.
Shot with my 35-70mm lens at f/22 and a shutter speed of 1/13, while I moved the camera in a diagonal motion.
