Girl With Hoodie

I’m obsessed with rendering scenes out of focus.  I love how – in the absence of detail – emphasis is placed on motion, light, color, and the body language and gesture of the figures.  Because the viewer has to fill in the blanks a bit I feel like the image is more engaging as we imagine what is actually occurring within the scene.  From my perspective, I also enjoy the process of taking the picture without fully knowing what effect I will get until I actually see the result, which is inviting serendipity into the mix.
