Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016
Plus Post, Week 1, Unfocus and Pan #PlusPost
This past week was a delightful blur of activity, travel, racing about, and in the midst of it all, I’m happily learning to view photography with unsharp eyes, and develop an appreciation for the creative expressions of BLUR in photography.
After just recently diving in to learn about the basics of my camera, the technicalities of focus, aperture, f/stops, shutter speed, (did I mention focus, Focus, FOCUS?) …I’m now enjoying the freedom afforded from the art of Intentional Camera Movement. So Much.
In my first visit to Nashville, Tennessee, over 3 short days I’ve managed to shoot over 1200 photos, and two or three of them didn’t turn out half bad. 🙂
What I’ve learned is that art of Blur/Unsharp/Zoom/Pan/ICM is entirely subjective, that the world is full of different perspectives, and that people can and do come together to help us see things in a whole new light. I’m grateful and excited to continue this journey with outstanding and enthusiastic mentors and photographers, because this is just the Freedom I’ve been longing for.
Many thanks to the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers, and specifically Alex Lapidus for giving me the chance to expand on my love of the captured moment, and for teaching me a whole new twist to the art!
