Abstract 2012 / by Jaakko Paarvala


One of my favorite photographic endeavour in 2012 was abstract impressions. It took some time to find the technique and suitable subjects, but in the second half of the year I got some decent work done. I was heavily influenced by Chris Friel, whose visions have come familiar to me on Flickr.


All the images here were hand-held with 1-2 second exposure, most of them with a tilt-shift adapter.



A nice thing with this kind of work is that vast majority of the work is done in-camera, there's only some straightforward adjustments done with the computer.

The way home


For me the beauty of abstract photos is the way it presents a different slice of the time than we usually observe, a window to the unseen.
