I just love capturing images in abstract form. So rather than creating a precise record of the moment, I endeavor to create a feel for the moment.
For me, an abstract portrayal can give rise to a much more personal approach to an image, allowing the viewer to add their own interpretation and thus create their own experience and emotions from the piece.
This particular image was taken on my youngest daughter's graduation day; such a proud and wonderful day for us all. By creating a less defined work, it is my hope that it will allow many people to enjoy such a moment in their own way.
This image was taken by setting a relatively slow shutter speed of 1/4 second. The camera was handheld and taken on the move in order to grab plenty of blur and to create the impression of movement and happening. Post capture editing included work in Lightroom and Photoshop. The adding of grain and conversion to black and white was carried out in the Google Nik Collection Software - Silver Effex Pro.
