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.

 Evening in Bol on the island of Brač, off the coast of Split. One of our last nights in Croatia - looking forward to a return to this beautiful country. Panasonic #GH5 12-60 lens 3 second exposure.
 Way back in March we spent a few nights at the awesome #aurorabear yurt run by @frankstelges If you want to hang out at the coolest yurt while watching #auroraborealis reach out to him!! While waiting for the aurora to show up I ran the 80D in time-lapse mode and then stacked it all in #starstax which answers the question - what's it look like when you shoot the stars AND the full moon and StarStax it all. Captured with the #Canon #80D and 24mm f/2.8 lens. (Note - the 80D ran for 3 hours in near zero temps on one battery!)
 Left to Right - Mahtotopa Mountain(8,671 ft), Little Chief Mountain (9,514 ft), Citadel Mountain (9,035 ft) - as seen from Going-To-The-Sun Point #GlacierNP is awesome even if #loganpass is closed! I could tell you when it will open but we were sworn to secrecy :) #mckaylive
