For a year, ePHOTOzine member David Pritchard took a shot every day with the Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens and the end result was a brilliant blog full of interesting and very different images.

Among the collection were several abstract shots which we've compiled in this article to hopefully fill you with inspiration and ideas for shooting your own abstract work.

Shots From Day 328: Tectonics On A Plate


The above are shots of butter on a plate. Which just goes to show that with a little imagination, the ordinary can make a great photo.

Shot Taken From Day 267: Geodesic Arch


Paper is a great medium for tonal work and can be used to create various interesting abstracts.This shot was taken with no additional lenses or extension.

Shot From Day 290: Helix


For the above shot, a couple of small extension tubes were used to get closer and bring out the textures on the metal. It was taken on a wet and grey afternoon which shows you can still take photos even on bad weather days.

Shot From Day 280: Colour Abstractions

Colour abstract

This shot is all about colour and a high focal length was used to select a small area with several different colours. The lens was then de-focused to create the above effect.

Shot From Day 286: Strands


The object in the above shot was spotted in a lighting department in a home store. David says: "You find the most fascinating array of things which can produce fantastic shapes and forms by the shadows they cast."
