Image No. 72 thru No. – The Real Aspens
It’s pretty obvious when an image of aspens is purposely blurred when it was originally taken, the intent being to create something more than the simple recording of what is in front of the camera. So when I take these images in sharp focus, I also keep that in mind as well and try to fill the frame with balanced graphic elements, either with or without a central focal point. Those without tend to have a more textural feel where the viewer themselves will find areas within the frame to explore, an object or a change in color or pattern, according to their own taste rather than having something neatly placed that is more obvious. In either case, blurred or not, the final result will hopefully lean towards an oil painting, a watercolor or a sketch.
