Been in a bit of a mood for abstracts at the moment, so here’s a few for Tree Tuesday in a similar vein, hope you like them.
First one taken on the ever reliable Zuiko 50mm f1.4 – a thorn bush on the 60D. With these sort of shots the background, even though out of focus, is just as important as the main subject – a difficult thing to remember for me at least. Layered in Photoshop.
Next – a Lensbaby shot taken with a quarry in the background and just an image of vague shapes really.
Finally, a ‘frame’ shot of, well not very much really – these are for book covers after all. Imagine it with the title and author and you get the idea – at least a I hope a cover designer will!
Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography. Have a good Tree Tuesday!
Really like these Rob, all three really set the mood. I was studying Ian Rankin covers yesterday in a charity shop and could not believe how ‘vague’ they were in design! Seems vague is the trick when applied correctly. This is proving quite a learning process which I am really enjoying;)
Hello Lesley, as you said in an earlier comment – ‘less is more’ and its a difficult thing to do photographing not very much!
Beautiful! I love these shots! I’ve never tried a lensbaby but it looks fantastic. I have to try it soon …
Hello Annette – I’ve had a fascination with then for a while now – they’re unlike anything else, especially the plastic lens.
I love the magical quality of the second picture.
