Abstract photography was the goal for this weeks Instagram challenge. Shooting abstract is typically a bit harder as your trying to focus on something without telling the whole story. It’s less about details and more color, shapes, form and emotion to let the viewer fill in the rest. It’s definitely one of the harder subjects we’ve done and you guys did good trying to fit this weeks goal.

Winners this week were chosen by Toby and Roy for the challenge.

You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #prtv_family. A Patreon chosen topic, it’s your chance to shoot your family and post the photos. As always the topic is open ended so you do have the chance to be creative, it’s not just portraits. As examples you could even do a little Lego family scene if that’s your thing or a family keepsake that bonds you all together. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_family.

Toby’s Winner:

I love the soft flowing green filling the frame.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

Natnees mostly identifiable rain drops – just the right blend of identifiable and abstract.

And Justin’s shot was one of the first that caught my eye -great colors and a pull to find out more about this image

Roy’s Winner:

Typically image manipulation is a bit off book for photo challenges but I think a mirror image is fine. It’s a nice split to infinity while still pulling in a bit of building details from the reflections.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Oil and paper tutorials for abstract photography was actually on the list to do this week. With Photokina that didn’t happen and Justin managed to make a really nice shot of the DIY project.

Kapechick has a great texture shot of a basket, it might be simple but it’s a good example of finding a detail in something you already own.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
