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.

And the team!

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.

 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
