Having run workshops on two very wet days last weekend, when there were very few people around and the light was dreadful, it reminded me that this is the perfect time to practice some abstract street photography.
Often overlooked in our quest to shoot interesting people (more about this hot potato in a future article), abstract street photography can be a wonderfully fulfilling and creative pursuit. Abstracts are all around us and there is potential in everything we see. Look for reflections, moisture on windows, wet surfaces, bold shapes, strong colours, interesting geometry or discarded objects.
So, when the weather’s bad don’t stay indoors and get bored – get out there and shoot some abstract street photography!
Here are a few examples I’ve shot over the past few months . . .
