skin crease

With the onset of winter, I’m forced indoors and need to try different things. This is not entirely a bad thing.

Making abstracts can be done with any object; it’s purely a matter of point of view. If you get close enough to something, or look at it from an unusual angle, it will take viewers a moment or two to begin to sense what they’re looking at.

As a sort of study for my series of body abstracts, I took some photos of myself. This is not entirely ideal, because it is impossible to frame the shot in the viewfinder and it is not easy to use autofocus on skin when there isn’t some sort of detail for it to focus on. So the process results in a lot of useless images. A few, such as here, can be cropped into something usable.
