Soft Effect by Camera Shake

Soft Blur-1-A09A5814

While experimenting the effect of the camera shake, I got the idea to use the old

images on the PC screen as a subject. (Give a shake to a screenshot.)

Soft Blur-2-A09A5840-001

Soft Blur-3-A09A5843-001

Shaking photography become an industrial scale —– and it’s much easier to give

a different way of shake in the room = hand-held or a tap on the camera, mounted

on a flimsy shaky tripod. —> It created pretty nice soft blurr. (Photo above )


On the screen, this was the original image taken by Zeiss 85mm F1.4 Lens.

Ref for 2-3-A09A1662-003

The photo above, the soft effect was made by a free program Picasa. = It’s obvious,  

a mechanical shake gives much more interesting effects. — and a fun !

soft Blur-4-A09A5850

soft Blur-5-A09A5857

Though, the screenshot having an inherent trouble to show the grid of the screen.

(If you enlarge this and next image, the grid would be seen.)

Soft Blur-6-A09A5798

If there wasn’t a trouble of the visible grid, this was a rather pretty image.  Pity.

(When right amount of the shake was given, the soft effect dissolve the line of grid. 

Too much shake spoil the image but too little leaves sharpness and the grid too.)

There is a possibility to use the Image Stabilizer for an opposite effect =

make an image blurred !   (Though, it needs to hack-in to the control program

otherwise the lens has to be modified !)

      Thank you Elena.
      — on front of the screen, it wasn’t much exercise though.
