Izzy’s Mask

Nikon F3, Nikkor 28mm-85mm 1:3.5-4.5, Artista Edu 400, Rodinal (1+100)

This photos is really growing on me. When I first saw it I lamented the lack of focus in the foreground. But the composition of the girl looking at my son in the foreground really makes it. The counter balance of the blurry and grainy bokeh in the top right helps a lot.

I’m reminded that many awesome pictures I love aren’t very sharp. New technology that captures perfect sharpness automatically isn’t necessarily required to make a artful picture. And after all my goal is to make art.
