Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

Short one this week. There still doesn’t seem enough time in the day to fit everything in.

When I first started trying to photograph people in the streets I used to end up with a lot of photographs I could throw away. Why? Because I didn’t want confrontation and so I’d keep the camera at chest height, suspended round my neck by the strap and just press the shutter button as I walked along the street. Not ideal as I found out when I got home.

Blur

Sometimes they would be blurred, sometimes I would get them in focus but I hadn’t captured the full scene. i.e. I’d chopped someone at the neck.

A shutter working at a speed of one-fourth to one-twenty-fifth of a second will answer all purposes. A little blur in a moving subject will often aid to giving the impression of action and motion. – Alfred Stieglitz

Of course I never really throw anything away so I can still pull them up from my back catalogue, ideal for when we get weird subjects like this for the weekly challenge. Not only that I live in hope that one day Adobe will develop a plugin for Photoshop that takes care of blur and really works.

Do you keep every photograph you take, even the blurred ones?. I’d love to hear from you.
