Analog Monday #5 - Defocus

by Piotr Matura July. 01, 2019 338 views

Just one photo today, before a 2-week break from PB, due to some busy days ahead and some vacation trips after that. I hope to make lots of photos during that time, though. Hopefully good ones ;)

I wanted to capture this whole tunnel sharp, but autofocus in my Minolta got lost and I hit the shutter release too soon. I deemed this frame wasted, but when I saw it after film got developed, I thought - "not that bad". Now I rather like it ;)

It works quite nicely. I am not sure it would have been as interesting if it was sharp.

Thank you, Russell. And I agree it works better this way. I tried quite a lot de-focusing since then (with a DSLR, though wink)

It's fantastic the way it is! I don't think it would be so appealing in sharp!

Thank you, Heike! I didn't expect such enthusiasthic reaction smile I agree it is better the way it is, and I'll add that sometimes a bit of luck and randomness could really help ;)

Thank for your comment, Peter. It is great that your daughter is interested in photography, too. Does she share her work anywhere?
