Another month for my contribution to the blog circle Push. This is all about pushing our creativity as photographers. But this month stumped everyone, including me! The topic was “humanizing a non human” and collectively we decided to scrap it and allow each contributor to choose their own topic. The only thing that came to mind were the extra images I wanted to share last month. Now I’m so glad I stuck to sharing only two images from last month’s theme, Motion Blur. It means I can have a part 2!
I have discussed the topic of motion blur/out of focus images with other photographers. Do you include these in a family session? Do clients like these? Are we shooting these just for our own artistic needs? Personally, I love them. It pulls me toward a more fine art feel versus the standard family portrait. And I recognize that this is where I feel my style going in the future. But these particular images are personal. My daughter was spinning and I loved the light coming from the trees in the distance and the movement of her hair.
