Freelensing, what is it? | Baby & Family Photography Melbourne

To make a technically good photo we're taught to always aim for strong focus in every shot but the creative side in me loves out of focus as it can evoke a feeling in it's own way. 

Focus, composition, and light are very important aspects to consider when taking a photo but sometimes you can break the rules.  One of those rules is called 'Freelensing'.  

Freelensing involves removing your lens from the camera and tilting it slightly which gives photos a very blurred, soft look.  To me Freelensing produces an almost dream like feel to the photos, a softness to the image giving it an impressionistic feel.  Photos can either have a select focus point or all out of focus.  It almost gives the photo a vintage feel, a little bit of mystery whereby the viewer can interpret their own story from the image. 

If you like this look let me know and I'll make sure to take a few images Freelensed during your photo session.
