Abstract Me with Me
I used my Google Pixel 2 in selfie mode ("OK Google, take a selfie"). I then uploaded the base photo into Mosaically ( https://mosaically.com ) and added the 2000+ photos from my 2019 photoshoots to create an abstract of me! So much fun. Try it yourself! * You can see an animation of the effect at my site. * You can see a super duper high res version of the photo on my website. Click on the link below the main photo. See link below! You may want to consider purchasing TurboMosaic ( https://www.turbomosaic.com ).

Abstract photography allows you to express emotions and ideas without having to create a realistic image. Instead of focusing on subjects, the photographer uses color, shape, lines, pattern, light (and shadow) and texture to enchant the viewer. One of the basic principles of abstract art is to strip away everything until there is just one or two elements left. Think, for example, of an extreme close-up of a sweater that only shows the texture and color of the sweater. Or a photo of apartment windows that is shot in such a way that emphasizes the repeating pattern or the play of light and dark. Motion blur, created by moving the camera or the subject can be used to create interesting abstracts. Abstract photos can also be created with multiple exposures, oil and smoke photography, bodyscapes and unusual angles of elements in nature, to name just a few..:) There is actually a huge range of abstract photography directions to explore, so have fun with this challenge and intrigue your viewers!
