Unfocused effect

Sometimes we need to just forget about the rules and “go with it”.  Whilst I was out photographing my girlfriend (working on human subjects and portraits) I decided to switch to manual focus and get a blurry image.  I thought the surroundings added to the effect of my subject not being in focus.  It gave my image an eerie quality to it; surreal even.  These two unfocused images brought to my mind a haunting image of a spirit; just visible but not quite there.  Playing around with camera settings is fun, IF you have the time and patience.   Sometimes we need to break away from the rules a) to learn something new and b) just to have fun and renew our passion by doing something out of the ordinary; you may just find you like it!  I leave you with a quote from that guy in that movie, which has nothing to do with photography…Photography can sometimes be a box of chocolate – you never know what you are going to get.

Yes.  I changed the quote. 

P.s.  I will post the other focused photographs in the very nearish future 🙂

  1. Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 Im glad there are people out there who can appreciate these words, not all hope is lost 🙂 Please do share with your friend! Thank you for reading and visiting! Hope you come back 🙂

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

    1. Thank you very much! Yes I have had compatibility issues. I think the problem is that explorer is a little old and wordpress works better on an updated browser like chrome or firefox. Also I’ve had problems with visitors trying to visit my blog on their phone – it doesnt show up on everyones. My suggestion is download google chrome 🙂 Hope this helps! Thank you for your visit and comment 🙂
