Unfocused II

Some time back I had written a post about an image that I had made that was purposefully unfocused at the time it was taken.  It had a certain feel to it that seemed to convey a ‘dreamlike’ state where the colors and shapes took over from reality.  That post, called Unfocused, can be read here.  Well, one would think that it would be easy to make a series of images like this……just aim, throw off the focus, and shoot.  It is easy enough to do, but I found it terribly hard to produce images that conveyed the feeling I was looking for…..a dreamlike, ‘trancelike’ image. I am pleased that I now have another image in the series that, to me, matches the feel of the original.  The second in the series.

    Now if I could just get a series of these that work…..the ones that work are few and far between. Thanks!

    You’ll know when you see it/them. You’ll just know.

    Yes, you are right about that. Something just resonates when it works
