Hocus Focus

This week, share a photo that represents focus to you. Are you a stickler for getting in close to your subjects and capturing every detail, or do you prefer a more ethereal look that illustrates the sensations of the moment?… —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Since taking up mobile photography on my iPhone I have become a big fan of the ethereal look referenced in today’s challenge. For the image below, I zoomed in slightly with my iPhone 7+ and then underexposed the image by raising the shutter speed and using the flash software in the Hipstamatic app. Touch ups were made in Luminar.

Hocus Focus. Magic!

      Thank you, Tara. Now that you bring it up, it might be interesting to run this thru one of those Painting apps and see how it turns out.
