Experimental - Photo Theme for Thursday

self-porrtrait photo
This is my first entry for this group. I was trying to take a self-portrait. I had my camera on self-timer. I moved to change my pose just as the photo clicked. Even though it was a mistake, I liked how it came out. I think it expresses the state I'm in when I am painting.

Thursday Challenge is a place for photographic fun and learning. A theme is announced on this site each week.

Many times the shots I like best I like because of their imperfections rather than in spite of them.

In this case, the motion blur gives the shot a painting-like quality that's uniquely suited to the subject. A knife sharp image would capture things that you won't get in this one. An expression, a look of concentration, minute details of the scene that are lost here. But what it would not capture is the flow of creativity required to render a painting from a blank canvas or paper.

Wonderful interpretation of the theme I'd say.

It's quite strange, but there is really something with this photo !

fun - I like the interplay of the focus and out of focus and the balance of the light and dark. The movement makes it very interesting!
