Abstract / Impressionism / Inspiration / Photography / Seascapes


August 25, 2019; Cuckmere Haven, The Seven Sisters, East Sussex. This is a follow-on to yesterday’s post. The day was such that we came to be standing quite happily knee-deep in the English Channel doing ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) shots of the water (yesterday) and the cliff named Haven Brow, which you see a vestige of above. Both shots are processed to a fare-thee-well — and done so with wild abandon equal to the shot iteslf, I might add.

(Nikon D850, Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 2.3; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

    • Thank you very much. Yes it is very freeing. I have some new abstracts coming up pretty soon. I might do one or two conventional landscapes or seascapes just to break it up a little bit before I dive back into abstract land.

  1. For me, this works better than the previous abstract. I think it’s because of the asymmetry, movement and interesting colors. I like the way you described the shooting and processing, too. Wild abandon is a good thing. 🙂

    • I agree with you. Thanks very much. More to come in this area. Interestingly, neither of these photos started as photos that were working straight. It was an experiment to see what I could turn them into. There’s a whole ’nother kind of abstract coming up next week. I’m going to intersperse some landscapes or seascapes in between just for the sake of variety.


      • People who are philosophically against processing sure miss a lot, don’t they? 😉 Mixing it up with land/seascapes and abstracts sounds good!

      • They do. They do. The latest cloudscape actually underwent a lot of processing, even though it may not look like it. Years in the advertising business taught me a lot about invisible processing. Take that as you will…
