Quick Tips to Make Something Look More Abstract

1. An effective method is to crop out visual references that will immediately identify the subject.

2. Find something in your subject that shows clean shapes or lines.

3. Look for repeating patterns in your subject that you can focus on because they provide a sense of balance to the shot.

4. Light and shadows is a great tool in creating an abstract shot.

5. Use colors to give more impact.
