Shannon Conways' Theme Portfolio

Western Australian rainbow

by Shannon Conway

Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting and may or may not have voted for my Portfolio. I now devote quite a lot of dive time to looking for abstract photography opportunities and was keen to see how these images went. I was never really inspired by abstracts, with no interest in producing them until persuaded by a good friend of mine (M. Edge) to persevere, so I have. They seem to be quite popular as fine art prints in modern beach houses in Australia, so I am trying to produce a range for the local market. I now love abstracts. Next time you're on a dive look around, think abstract, take a few images, and like me you may be converted.

Great Portfolio JP, well done for thinking outside the box!
