Abstract photography and design may seem like a one big mess to the untrained eye, but is in fact often a masterfully crafted mix of colors, shapes and textures. As these free abstract stock photos that I have hand picked from our gallery show you, there are many different ways to archive an abstract and random effect.

If you are unfamiliar with the term abstract in photography, subjects such as light-painting, patterns, blurry images, smoke and bokeh will give you a good idea on the term. You can also create abstract designs using a 3D rendering software or an image editing program such as Adobe Photoshop.

I have tried to select a variety of different abstract stock photos to show you what can be done with abstract subjects and maybe you will get some inspiration to create abstract artwork. It’s really a fun way to get those artistic juices flowing and a step closer to creating that next masterpiece. I hope you enjoy this post!
