Inspiration from a Happy Accident

I found this old photo from my rejected photos in Lightroom. It was for a blog post I did for Chanel Beauty. The camera went off at the same time I flicked my hair. The motion blur came out really cool, but for the project that was about featuring my makeup, it didn’t work. 

Still I love the end result. It’s one of those happy accidents that inspires experimentation and creating something I normally wouldn’t in my day to day. Product photography doesn’t encourage blur - it’s all about precision and taking tack sharp work. This is one image I’m saving for my personal portfolio though - a place where I can embrace the blur.
