Focus is overrated… Okay, perhaps I am getting a little conceptual here, but if you think about it, photographers (in the modern digital age especially) seem to be obsessed with the crisp and perfect image. So in a world of all sharp photographs, one that breaks those rules stands out.
When I photograph sunsets I look for that interesting view. Today I couldn’t find it – that silhouette, that object, that perspective. There was just nothing different to point my camera at, and I didn’t want just a plain old sunset – so I turned my lens until I everything was WAY out of focus. Suddenly, there it was, the alternative view I was searching for.
