Photographic Abstract Art

My Abstract Photography Series continues …

I have been working on a series of abstract photographs based on the backdrops of TV talkshows.  I used to love watching Terry Wogan as a kid, and secretly wish it was back on screen.  Oprah Winfrey, possibly the most famous stateside and of course Parky had very long careers and set changes.  The colours of their sets gave the mood of the show.  Most of the time we don’t notice, but … it sets the scene.  Daytime shows are bright and light, evening shows are normally dark and more moody.  I have acquired nearly every colour made by Lee light filters and I’m trying different combinations to re-create unique photographs.  Here are a few of my latest creations.

Colour Theory Project

I have been working on using colour in some of my personal work lately.  I enjoy spending time in my little attic room, using torches and coloured gels in the darkness with only the radio for company.  These abstract pieces of work were achieved simply by using light and shadow, the fundamental basics of photography. I like the fact that although I can control the outcome to a certain extent, I can never be too sure of how each frame will turn out.  As some lights are hand held and moved, no image is ever exactly the same.
