“ Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop – Ansel Adams

Going abstract

Last Christmas I took a few shots of my Christmas decorations and I took them deliberately out of focus. This way, they turned out like nice colorful abstracts. Did not think of their existence until today, when I came across them while reviewing my past shots and decided to go the abstract way in my editing.

After punching up contrast and saturation, I tried out some textures and after an hour or so of trial and error these are my first two abstract works. Obviously, I plan  to make a few more, but I’m very fickle in my creative process, so don’t expect them too soon Sorriso.
