The Creativity Project | Soft Focus



While I generally aim for sharpness and clarity in my photos, I absolutely love softness and dreaminess when it’s called for.  For the longest time, I would just browse and look through images online and wonder how some photos get the creamy-dreamy effect.  I am still having fun experimenting and trying to achieve this. I’m not always successful, but once in a while, I get something that I’m happy with.

Please head on over and visit with Becky (her blog) to check out her lovely soft focus images and then follow on through to the next one in our circle.  Once you are done visiting our circle, please check out our Facebook page and share your soft focus photos. We love to get inspiration from you!
