What is Abstract Photography or Art?

Abstract Photography or Art Clouds
Abstract Photography or Art is a combination of shapes, forms, colours or lines in whichever way artist please. Abstract Photography or Art is solely created to satisfy inner emotional or physiological hunger of artist. Abstract Photography or Art is totally free from the attempt to capture or reproduce visible reality of world.

There is no any set or official definition of Abstract Photography or Art but to understand it further we have to look into the history of Art. Till the mid of 19th century the visual art was emphasised on the reproduction of visual reality of the world. At the middle of 19th century artists started feeling the need of the art to satisfy their psychological hunger instead of reproduction of a visual scene. And by the end of 19th century few artists started creating art pieces solely to express their feelings or philosophy and that work was given the name of Abstract Art. Abstract Art is basically sensed as the disappearance of reality and head towards world of imagination. This disappearance of reality can be slight, partial or complete.

For example I am sharing few photographs below all of them are work of Abstract Photography but instead of explaining the individual image I had assembled them in such a way that they convey my feelings or philosophy to the viewer. *Best viewed in Laptops or Pc.

Still Life Photography or you can say Still Life can be defined as a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells and so on) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewellery, coins, pipes, and so on).

This is the common definition of still life but this definition just gives half knowledge. The second part of still life which is mostly left unsaid is that even when you take pictures of unanimated objects or you can say take pics or paint the life less objects even then you have to put life in them. To be clearer even the life less objects in your art should give a feeling to the viewers that they are living.  For example Life is also generally related with the movement so your objects can give a feeling that they can move or can be moved any moment. And when you get a feeling that the things in this art work has life or can move any moment but you had captured them still, will be called as still life.

क्या एक आम आदमी अपनी आदतों का गुलाम होता है?

वैसे हर इंसान का इन् आदतों के प्रति अपना अपना नज़रिया होता है। कुछ लोग किसि आदत को अच्छा कहेंगे तो कुछ उसी को बुरा। मगर कुछ आदतों पर समाज ने अच्छे और बुरे की मोहर लगा रखी हे ताकि समाज के ठेकेदारों का भी कारोबार चलता रहे।

बादल, बिजली, हवा और मैं।

Took this shot yesterday night from my bedroom window, Jaipur. It was a single 9sec exposure with: Camera- Canon EOS 550D, Lens- EF50mm f/1.8 II, Exposure- 9.0 sec;   f/22;   ISO 100; Manual; Spot metering. Took it without the tripod, just held the Camera steady with the support of window.
रात के 2 बज गए थे, नींद का नामोनिशां दूर दूर तक दिखाई नहीं दे रहा था। तभी मेरी खिड़की पर हवा ने दस्तक दी और बादलों ने आवाज़ दे कर मुझे पुकारा। आवारगी तो जैसे नस नस में भरी हुई है, तुरंत तैयार हो गया सड़कों की ख़ाक छानने के लिए। मैं जैसे ही पलंग से उठने को हुआ महसूस हुआ की मेरे कुर्ते का एक कोना मेरे ढाई साल के लाल के हाथ में है। खिड़की से छन के आती हुई सरकारी खम्बे की रौशनी में मैंने अपने लाल की ओर देखा तो वो इत्मिनान की नींद सो रहा था। अचानक से बादलों ने मुझे फिर से आवाज़ लगाई, इस आवाज से मेरा नौ निहाल थोड़ा कसमसाया और अपनी मुट्ठी को और ज़ोर से बंद कर लिया, जिस में मेरे कुर्ते का कोना अब भी अटका हुआ था।

मैं कुछ देर तो वहीं बैठा रहा और मेरे सारे पुराने दोस्त मुझे बुलाते रहे। फिर मैंने धीरे से अपने कुर्ते का कोना उस की मुट्ठी से निकाला और खिड़की पर जा कर सभी दोस्तों से कहा 'अब मैं पापा बन गया हूँ।'
