Creating abstract photos is something I enjoy quite a bit. One method that I like to use is to use my macro lens and play with mixing oils with water.
The soft and subtle natural oil hues create very simple monotone images.
More colorful abstract art is created using: colored lights, food coloring, or using patterns in a way that they get reflected on the oils. You never really know what is going to happen and the same thing never happens twice which is something I enjoy immensely about this technique.
Natural and artificial lighting can really play some fun games bouncing off the oils. I find it helpful to not play by any rules when creating abstract designs so it is one of those elements of photography that I just enjoy.
