Using a blur in photography

Just because you can’t see the finer details of an image it doesn’t mean it can’t tell a story. Using blur (in-camera or photoshop) can be a great tool to use. You can use blurred images in a range of ways; in a photographic series to create a small break, as a photobook cover so it doesn’t detract attention from the title or to allow the viewer to connect the dots. It can also make colour ‘pop’ and shapes stand out. Its a really simple concept that can be really effective, just maybe don’t blur all the images!
