What is abstract photography? Just a blurry image – barely!

Abstract photography can take so many different forms that it is difficult to define an exact definition. That’s what makes it so fascinating, the photo club said.

In this presentation, I will cover and discuss the many forms of abstract photography and the techniques used to create them. Simplicity, composition, angle of view, lighting, harmony and above all mystery, said Katz.

Katz will explain how to create effective abstract images using everyday objects, using design elements, using macro lenses, shooting through objects, capturing motion, playing with lighting and how to create a home studio to create and capture abstract images.

“Photography has been part of me since I was very young. One of my dad’s earliest memories is of him looking through the viewfinder of his twin-lens reflex camera,” Katz said.

“He quickly switched to the Konica rangefinder which was constantly at his side. I vividly remember the family vacation slideshows as well as the more private moments shared by my parents,” Katz said.

“My first camera was the Olympus Pen F half frame and I quickly went through the full range of Olympus OM models. Fast forward to today’s digital cameras and images. I still shoot Olympus but I added a Nikon to the bag,” Katz said.
