Inspiration from a Happy Accident

I found this old photo from my rejected photos in Lightroom. It was for an Instagram post I did in collaboration with Bumble & bumble about a year ago. The camera shutter happened to go off the same time I flicked my hair. The motion blur came out really cool, but for the project that was about featuring my hairstyle in detail, it just 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 for my personal archives. It’s a concept I’d love to use again in the future.
