Been playing around with Blur. Its been a Blurry theme over at Mortal Muses for the past few days. I've gotten to the age where glasses are becoming a needed thing. However, I'm not quite there yet. Just got my first pair and still am using them sporadically versus full time. So, blur seemed a little fitting and I figured I'd play along.
Blur is so interesting. I found that the best way was to use the manual focus and adjust the focus and amount of blur that way. There definitely is a line of where there is too much blur. However I was really happy with the cool bokeh effects you can get.
This one is taken through the window screen. It gave the photo an interesting effect of being on canvas.
This one, well happened by accident. Sometimes really the best blur photos are by accident.
This one, I moved the camera as I took the photo.
This one I moved the bowl that held the greens.
This one was taken with my iPhone while experimenting with street photography. I am too shy to take a photo other than in stealth. So this one is blurry and off kilter because I was walking and holding my iPhone by my side. I've saved this one in the archives for some reason. Its sad, it speaks volumes as to our homeless people in the city. Yet it makes me smile because you have to hand it to the guy... its innovative marketing for panhandling.
