In our previous weekly round-up, we have mentioned our intention to add a new category to the daily Top 10 Contributors contest. A new category that bear the theme “Abstract” & “Minimalism” photography.
In the past few weeks, we’ve been noticing some participant who are sharing these kind of photography to the #photocircle tag. Even though we find it creative & beautiful, we are having issues in categorizing it to the nine (9) categories that we currently have.
Some of the participants are posting an abstract / minimalism photos that have architecture as subject.
One of them is @bringolo, these are the current posts that we deemed qualified:
Feel free to visit the posts for your reference.
On the other hand, abstract style of photography could also be applied to a common household objects like an “egg”. One of the good examples is from @smawkward with his post entitled “Using an egg to see light”, below is the final result of his lighting test shot.

In addition to the household objects, a common object like “water & sand” by @bigotemaifriend is also a good example for this type of photography. One of his posts entitled “♨️ Water & Sand Geometries - Photo Collection 📸” is also qualified to our criteria. Below is one of his creative shot from his series.

While some of you would think that abstract is mostly for geometric objects, we also find it interesting to see the use of animals for this type of photography. One of the best examples that we featured to our Top 10 Contributors contest is the entry of @tcpolymoth wherein he creatively shoot parts of the animals to result to show in its abstract / minimalist view. You may visit his post entitled “Introducing Animal Geometries” and below is one of the photos from his post.
