TIPS FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT:
Use your imagination when creating your photos. The only rule is that they have to look totally, absolutely, unforgettably creative and awesome. This is an exercise in reducing the photo to basic elements. Simplicity is very important when composing abstracts. Abstracts are about eliminating unwanted details.  Think in terms of the concepts we’ve discussed in class.  Put the objects in beautiful light with dramatic shadows and use interesting compositions.  Experiment with your camera angle until the scene shows the elements in the most pleasing balance.

FINAL PRODUCT: Submit two interesting images using the “abstract” technique.
•Put each image on a Photoshop background.
•Give the background a color.
•Put borders around each image.
•Put your name, Abstract and period number at the top of each photo.
•Save your images as:
         p#lastname_abstract1
         p#lastname_abstract2

•Put your photos in the correct P#Abstract folder in the 206 teacher server.
