  1. SHADOWS –   The shadow casts by an object or person is the focal point, or major feature, of the image.

  1. ABSTRACT

Abstract photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world.  An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable subjects in the actual world.

An abstract photograph may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer.

It may be deliberately staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression.


Examples :

 

  1. OPEN – MONOCHROME

A Monochromatic image has  a single colour, with different shades of that colour, and white, instead of a recording the colours of the object that was photographed.  The selected colour may be black, which produces images containing tones of grey ranging from black to white

  1. STILL LIFE

A still life photograph depicts mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on.)  Generally a still life includes a fully depicted background, and makes aesthetic concerns the primary focus.
