Hi Friends! Welcome to Photo Club.
For this challenge, we are going to explore the how to create abstract photographs. Abstract art does not attempt to represent reality. Instead, it focuses on elements of art like shape, color, texture and form. You likely won’t recognize the subject of the photograph, but this lets us to use our imagination and take a closer look at the image.
To get some inspiration, we are going to practice color blocking in Spanish Village, located in Balboa Park. Check out the videos below to learn more and get inspired to play with abstract photography!
