Abstract Photography

Photograph of the bark of a small tree in our backyard. The white section of the picture is evidence of fungus on the trunk of the tree. I was surprised at the results of this macro photography. It seemed to me like an abstract painting at an art gallery. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

“Every photograph is a lie, but it is within that lie that a mountain of truth is revealed!  And the climb toward that mountain of truth is greatly accelerated when one’s steps are rooted in the simple understanding of exposure.”Bryan F. Peterson

Picture shot with a P&S Canon PowerShot A720 IS without a tripod.  An oyster white ring light was used to fill in the ambient light.  It was about two o’clock in the afternoon when the picture was taken.  Very hard light was in the air.

  1. It’s amazing how much this resembles a tree trunk covered with early snow. When conditions are right, wet snow will cling to vertical surfaces, and sometimes only on the side from which the wind is coming.

    Even though it’s fungus rather than snow, I like it very much. The texture of the bark is fabulous.

    1. Morning Linda,

      When I first saw this picture on my computer screen, it resembled an abstract painting, just like the ones I’ve seen hanging on the walls of many of my friends.

      I agree that the texture of the bark is very attractive to the eye. I’m glad you liked this unusual photograph.
