|My Abstract Art Contest entry on MyShutterSpace|
I belong to MyShutterSpace a great photo sharing site- my favorite. Last sunday I decided to enter the contest in the Abstract photography group (they have a wide variety of groups to join). The contest was to photograph a common household object but to focus in on the color and texture, so I searched for something interesting to photograph. I found my knife set in its butcher block holder; took lots of pics from different angles and different lighting. Got one I really liked and then inverted the colors to come up with the above photo. Some of the other photos are below.
It always amazes me what a difference the lighting makes in shadows and even in the coloring; which shows up in these photos.
BTW: I got second place; there was not many entries but; hey, second place is still second place.
