Maybe you’re wondering what I mean with the title “If This then That”. Well many times when I see an object, which in this case is the (This), my mind immediately goes to the idea of (then That). Which translates into making that object an abstract. As some of you might know, I really love free flowing form!
During the fall there were many times I’d see really colorful trees, but not the kind that would make a beautiful macro, or even a full tree photograph. These trees or leaves were not without a lot of flaws, they might have been diseased, or maybe it was really low light as it was almost dark.
Here below are two examples of simple trees with fall color, and also two examples of the abstract motion blur images that I made out of those trees.
If you enjoy abstract photographs, then I think you’ll enjoy these!
Here are the fall leaves, I honestly have no clue what kind of tree this is.
Then this is “Pirouette”, a free form, flowing abstract.
These are yellow leaves of some sort, and red berries.
Then this is the golden yellow abstract I made called “Swirling Autumn”
If for some reason you’ve never tried any abstract photography, motion blur, tree panning, or anything with a longer shutter speed. I urge you to give it a try.
The subject certainly doesn’t have to be leaves or trees. You can literally take just about anything and make into something very free-form, light spirited, and fun!
Get out there and have a great time! 🙂
