During our earlier stages of photography we get advice and we read in all possible forums and get advice from everyone that the best photograph is one which is in sharp focus and has well defined subject. We try all that is possible (bumping ISO, using sturdiest of tripods, etc) to ensure we get that. But as we proceed further in the image making process we realize that its sometime the non-sharp subjects which causes more pleasing and “artistic” images. During my last trip i personally tried the forcefully induced camera shake in getting some repetitive patterns and specific type of images which i had visualized after seeing similar images in other international photography forums from west. Having said that its definitely not at all an easy task to shake the camera and still continue to get a keeper image which pleases our mind’s eye. It takes a really lot of effort to over come what i have told in earlier past of this description (bump down ISO, remove camera off tripod) and proceed with getting vision and capture to match.
