Accidental Out of Focus Toddler
Lens: FA 77 Camera: Pentax K-3 Photo Location: North Carolina ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F2.4 
Posted By: Heie, 10-20-2014, 06:28 PM

I was doing a portrait shoot with a friend's toddler and this one picture I can't help but stop looking at. I know it's out of focus, but still.....I really really like it.... Cropped only slightly from the bottom (to cut out some flare at the very bottom - besides I like the wider aspect anyway).

Anyway I wanted to share it - like I said....total accident, but I love it.

Processed with Topaz Clarity and there was one off-camera flash (Cactus RF60 and a V6 on the camera), but to be honest I don't know how much it affected this image. She was too fast and just kept running around the entire time to try and keep within the flash's range/field of view.

I'll add some of the other images later if there's interest.

it works.. I've come to appreciate less-than-perfect sharpness and even deliberately putting shots out of focus. Nice shot
