Conceptual, abstract photography or art photography is about the world around me. It is perhaps the hardest section to define. This images leave more to the imagination; texture, shapes, color, movement are some qualities associated with this images. Normal objects in abnormal settings. The mundane and ordinary world seen in another light, redefined, reinvented. Here is where I feel the most ‘artistic’. When you make something out of nothing. Improvisation, imagination and perspective are key qualities of conceptual images. Thinking outside the box is important here. We sometimes want to make the viewer think about symbols and meanings. Juxtapositions are commonly used. As opposed to photos of places, conceptual images are not straightforward. I like to play with reflections. When I get almost mirror like reflections I experiment by flipping the image upside-down so as to blur the difference between the real and the reflection. It can take the viewer a little while to figure it out. I feel that all rules, techniques, standards of photography can go flying out the window. Moved images, out of focus, over and under exposed, are all restraints. No need for a fancy professional camera, a cel phone will do the job. As long as there is a concept there is a commentary.
