Minimalism and Abstraction in Photography Meetup - Magnuson Park - 9 am - 2 hours
What happens when we ignore many of the compositional rules of photography and eliminate the obvious subject of the photograph?

What happens when we eliminate elements from a photograph and focus on a single element?

Abstraction and minimalism are elements of photography grouped together but each have unique challenges and benefits.

We will discuss conceptual and compositional implications of both techniques, as well as allowing plenty of time to make photographs!
