Blurring is something I struggle with in my photography. My eyes just aren’t good enough to tell whether a photo is blurry or in focus until I get it on my computer screen and sometimes I’m not even sure then!
With my new camera, the Sony a5000, the most common problem I have is that only a small part of my subject is in focus, like in the photo above and this one of lichen below.
Sometimes, I also run into the problem of my camera focusing on the wrong thing, like with in this picture of Scooby where my camera focused on the foliage and not the cat.
I got more blurring than I wanted in my first attempt at panning too. The background is supposed to be blurred but I wanted Daniel and the bike to be in sharper focus.
Some of my favorite photos by my photographer friends are mostly blurred and it creates a beautiful effect that elicits a pleasant emotional response. But, with my own photography, I’m never sure. How much blur is too much blur?
