Aby-a-Day – March 22: “Focus” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Focus.”

Sadly, some of the best photos I take of Jacoby aren’t in focus.

Like these of him helping me put things in the new cupboards. It’s mostly my fault, because I prefer not to use the flash on my camera so I shoot using available light. Jake just happens to move a lot.

I keep the out of focus photos to use as references when I’m drawing cartoons, or because maybe I can do something with them in Photoshop to improve them. For example, take this miraculous one of Jake and Angel together (together!) on the cart. Oh, if only it were in focus!

But a little Photoshop and it becomes something wonderful. Not a photograph, exactly, but definitely improved.
