Focus on blurs
For this blur topic, I spent a good amount of time to select and re-select photos, but when I went back to Raj’s post (glad I did), I realized that Raj wanted us to focus on “the importance of blurriness in the pictures”, not DOF shots. This says how much I know about blurring. Well, that is a part of the learning process. Learning from my mistakes is always a valuable lesson, this is also one of the reasons I love about Raj’s Photo Lesson series.
As walking through the Fairmont Banff Hotel at around 7 am, I was pleasantly surprised with the morning sunlight pouring in from the east side of those large window panels, I kept clicking. Toward the end of the long hallway, I was fascinated by the shadows and reflections of a window spot. I took a few shots through the window, but wasn’t happy with the intense backlit. The next morning, I was up earlier and glad to see the soft and beautiful sunlight. This one is very blurry because it was captured through a window. I wonder if the photo may look better with a different camera setting.
This blurry flower image is one of those “intentional blur”, maybe (?).
