Abstract Photography: Exploration & Experimentation

Since the beginning of photography, artists have experimented with abstraction to create new compositions of color, tone, shape, form, line, and pattern. In this online course, you will explore concepts and techniques used in creating abstract art with photography. Students will look at examples of abstract photography and its history as a source of inspiration, and experiment with making abstract photos. Over the course of three two-hour sessions, students will consider and apply various strategies for breaking from the camera’s realistic tendencies. The class will also explore making abstract photographs without a camera. Sign-up today and leave the confines of realistic representation with this new online course with HCP!
