Previsualise Your Abstract Image


The subject that is in front of you is only a starting point. Before you shoot, you must ask yourself what you want its final form to be. Do you want the colours to merge? Or would you wish to give a completely different form to your subject and create your own design? This decision is largely dependent on the subject itself. Its form, shape, colour and inherent nature are some of the things you must consider when creating an abstract image. For example, a tree can be photographed as an intricate, abstract pattern because of the sheer number of leaves and the manner in which they branch out.
