30 Amazing Abstract Photos Taken With The iPhone

Thank you for participating in our weekly iPhone photography contest. The contest theme this week was abstract and we had so many amazing creative entries that used the key concepts of abstract photography such as color, shapes, lines, curves, patterns and blur. Here are my personal favorites this week.

How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we featured a tutorial covering 6 ways that you can use negative space to create more powerful iPhone photos. The article covered how to use empty space in your photos to create simpler and more powerful compositions.

Using negative space in your iPhone photos can help draw attention to your main subject by simplifying the scene. It can also evoke strong emotions in the viewer by conveying a sense of scale and context.

Leaving empty space is also important when photographing moving subjects, and in portrait photography where the person is looking to one side of the frame – the space gives the subject room to move or look into.

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

So the new contest theme is negative space, and any photos that include a large amount of empty space can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSSpace tag on EyeEm. You can tag photos in the description field when you upload them, or when you edit the description of a photo that has already been uploaded (tap the three dots icon to edit a photo).

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please upload photos to EyeEm in full resolution and without any watermarks to make sure I can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, September 28.
