Scott moved while I was shooting this image and I liked it better than any of the images that came out clear, Sometimes "accidental" images can be your best or favorite pieces. That's why my motto is "continuous shooting"! I do like to motion the camera when shooting too. However, this one was all on the model.
When thinking of a kitten, you think, soft, fluffy. This image appeals to that description. Makes you "feel" the kitten's softness, the fluffy fur. The hands look comfortable and protective. The bokeh helps the color come together in a pastel, again, "soft" look. This shot makes you think of a "helping hand" or a protector, .....angelic . The "blur" helps with the thought of motion....is he is moving this animal to a "safer" place, shielding it from harm.
Accidental images are much more FUN these days with digital cameras, then they were in film! Film cost way more than an sd card! And "deleting" waste nothing. I think that's why not so "perfect" images have been recognized as "art". Yes, this image is "blurry", but the blur "says" something, it adds to the story. The crop my seem odd, but it also adds movement and emotion to the image. I just love when I'm "surprised" with a sweet shot!
