How does one purposely produce a blurry picture? At night, with little lighting, it is easy, because the camera wants to open the shutter for longer, allowing in more light. No one stays perfectly still at a party (this was taken at a Simchat Beit HaShoeva at my kids’ school), so I got lots of blurry pics.
Yesterday I took a photo of a bee on a mum that I love; however, that one blurred only the background. So this time I challenged myself to blur the main subject as well. I achieved the bee on mum with background blurred by setting the aperture as priority, sort of opposite of the technique the above photos.
