Going abstract for the holidays

My holiday break was disrupted by a nasty cold which delayed in the processing and posting before the start of the new year. I don’t know if it was the congestion, the medication or just good clean curiosity that inspired me to stick a drinking glass in front of my camera and point it at the family Christmas tree. I’m feeling much better now and I still dig the results.

Tilting the angle of the glass, adjusting focal point and aperture produces some pretty whacky results. I’m already looking forward to next year (minus the cold)!

Not to be left out of the fun, my Lensbaby Composer got a little action using Creative Aperture and keeping nothing in focus!

Earlier in the day, the Eternal flame at the Alberta Legislature provided a some fiery abstract forms when frozen in time with a high shutter speed.

And finally I decided to have a little HDR fun and through myself into the frame for good measure!

I know I have a sour look on my face. I could blame my cold, but the truth is I had to hold the position for a long exposure and that’s just my neutral expression. I’ll make my resolution for the new year to try not look annoyed especially when I’m not!

Happy New Year :-D

 

About Chris Wulff

I like to make pictures. Sometimes they move across the screen, sometimes they move you. I draw with fire on wood, with my finger on a phone, with a keyboard and fancy filters and sometimes even with a pencil on paper. I use a camera to capture what I see and my imagination to capture what I can't see.
