This workshop is crafted for those who have a unique perspective and they want to know how to capture it, or for the curious minds who are looking for some inspiration to view the world in an unparalleled way! Abstract photography is classified as mood imagery where the image itself takes you on an unidentifiable journey. You will learn how to think outside the box and create thought-provoking images by paying close attention to detail, the senses, and simplicity. Hence my favorite quote is by 20th century abstract photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn, “The simplest things are the most profound.” We will review the history of abstract photographers throughout time and discuss how visual elements including color, texture, contrast, and composition can illustrate a mysterious point-of-view. This workshop will go against standard artistic rules where you have limitless freedom to express your artistic nature.
