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 🙂
