Out of Focus
After weeks of carefully calculating hyperfocal distances (yes, that was me on the beach with the yellow measuring tape) to ensure sharp images for my college project, I decided to be a little self-indulgent this week and give ‘intentional camera movement’ another go. Ordinarily I would choose a slightly slower shutter speed, and so increase the abstractness of the image, but it was a bright day and I was concerned about highlights blowing out. This image, then, was taken at 1/4 second, with a slight vertical panning motion to soften it a little and give it a more painterly feel. It’s perhaps not my favourite (that’s probably still this one), but holds some appeal for me. Hope it does for you too!
