This is a far from perfect photo. With iffy panning and uneven motion blur, it’s the kind the image I usually delete when I pick my keepers after an event. But the image grew on me. Not only did I not delete it, it got elevated as a blog pick.
As I continue to explore photography, I vacillate between trying to achieve perfection and shooting more from the heart. The objective of course is to create a compelling photograph. Perfection can be boring but extreme imperfection can merely be caused by sloppy technique. So how to you strike the balance?
This photo results from a combination of factors. I had a desire to create something similar but my imperfect execution resulted in a clumsy implementation. But not so much that it’s a total mess. If I were dishonest, I could boast that I was purposely going for this look. Not so. But, I’ll always take a happy accident.
