Ever since I learned photography, I have always been taught to get the images as sharped as I can. The best images presented by the best photographers are always very sharped. So over the time, improving this skill has always been my top priority. Today I would like to present to you an image that’s captured by a technique that normally general publics do not approve because it might appear as an error or a technical issue. It is not just the foreground or the background being blurred, the entire photo is blurred.
This image was captured with intentionally blurred (AKA OOF = out of focus), it’s a technique that I have watched and learned through the photos captured by Shannon Kathleen Photography. I have been following her for awhile and all of her intentional blurred photos have a fun inspirational story behind it. The more I read about these blurred photographs, the more I was intrigued by this technique. This photo was taken a few weeks back when I was standing from a far observing the kiddos running around and played at the pond. In my mind, I wanted this image to be in my brain forever and ever. I immediately thought of Shannon and her intentionally blurred technique. Although in real life, everything is sharp and nice, but I wanted this photo to be blurred representing what I saw as a memory, a beautiful memory of my precious little ones with some mysterious sensation. It was what my mind experienced at the time the frame was taken. I felt so excited to be able to put this image into a photograph, a memory that only I can understand and belongs to just only me.
Today, I’m excited to find out that this photo was featured at Reflections – Capturing Life in ART – photography/forum.
Thank you so much for the feature.
