Guest Speaker, Don Rosenberger - What is Abstract Photography?
What is abstract photography? Capturing abstract images takes a different way of looking at the world around us; focusing less on specific details. If fact, when done well abstract photography should appeal to our primal senses, evoking emotion through form and color rather than detail.
During this lecture we will explore a brief history of abstract art and how it has translated to photography. We will explore many of today’s examples of abstract photography. We will discuss what makes good abstracts, as well as specific examples of how to create your own abstract masterpieces!
Don Rosenberger sold all his camera gear and walked away from photography. But that was back in 1983. He found another camera in 2005 and has spent most of his weekends and vacation time trying to make up for those years away.
Since then he has worked with and been mentored by a great group of well known and some not so well known photographers. Today Don is driven by the passion and urge to always create something better and to take his work to the next level. He is drawn to a variety of subjects, but considers landscape photography to be the core of his work. Being outside and often in remote locations gives him an appreciation for our natural world. It is his hope that his images bring others that same feeling.
Don shoots with everything from the iPhone, to high end DSLR’s and infrared. But it’s not the camera that is important; it’s just a tool of the photographer’s vision. Don is the former presentations manager for the Nature Visions Photography Expo; and, he is a partner in Road Runner Photography Tours, leading national and international photography tours.
