A Blur Of Fun

Hu-Dad aimed his camera on the Little Prince for a royal pose when Typhoon decided a blur of fun would be better.

A blur of fun

Hu-Dad is an old school photographer manually adjusting his aperture and shutter speed for each image. He and Typhoon discussed a posed shot, an image which could be taken with a wide open lens and slow shutter speed to capture details. Hu-Dad aimed and Typhoon flopped on the ground, spinning like a Siberian Husky break dancer. The end result is a perfectly focused eye, but the body and grass in a blur of fun. Hu-Dad said he is going to consider still art from now on.

    That is one really cool royal picture!! The prince with his eye firmly on the prize while everything spins. Or some such nonsense. 🤣🤣

    To ask his Highness to comply with a request is asking for the opposite response. Noticing now too that the photos are one size now? No ability to click on them and see the larger picture in more detail (or blurriness)? 🙂
