Abstract Photography Ideas & Inspirations

Summary – A follow-on to Monday’s abstract photography introduction. Before exploring the details of making abstract photographs (in future posts), here are the Special Merit Award Winners from an exhibit – to provide you with both ideas & inspiration.

“Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant, there is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.”  Johann Gottfried Von Herder

Beautiful images, every one

All are design-based (as they should be) –

No immediately recognizable subject

A wide range of styles

At least two are digital art IMO (as in – not seen in any viewfinder)

Is there a style that appeals more to you than others?

An image that really “sings to you”? Let me know which.

Get any ideas? Inspirations?

A post every week or so on the

What’s, how’s & why’s

To the artists:
I asked Joe for permission to use images from the NVACC website. He replied –

You are welcome to use whatever images you want from the NVACC website except those by entrants in the Abstract exhibits since I don’t have approval from them to use their images other than on the NVACC website.

Thus, the blame for this usage is mine alone. For that I ask your forgiveness as well as your permission (belatedly). Asking personally, except for the few of you who I know personally & could email, was impractical – and still left me with over 1/2 without explicit permission since I had no contact info. 😦

I assumed that since “we’re all in this together” – i.e., support  for “Abstract Joe” and his exhibit, that you’d extend the same permission given to him to this blog series. The series is a direct result of Joe recommending me to do an Abstract Photography program at NVPS in a few months. He’s a behind-the-scenes “editor” for these posts, as well. I plan to “plug” his 4th annual exhibit periodically – starting today –  and see if, based on blog readership in over 100 countries, I can generate enough interest to make the participation in the Joe’s “4th Annual” truly international.

Again – blame me, not Joe.

If you are one of the artists & would like your image removed
Please let me know & it will be removed immediately
Otherwise – congratulations on your winner & thanks for its use

    • Those three would be toward the top of my list, too – plus Punch.

      To my eye, what they share in common (as compared to others) are warm colors and simplicity of style & design.

  1. I swear, I chose my favorites first and afterwards scrolled down here — just to find the exactly same mentioned by you guys already…
