Photograph Manipulation – Real to Surreal

original walk on beachbeachwalk

I love taking original photos and giving them a Surreal, dream-like quality. It puts me in a dream-like state to imagine who they are, what they are experiencing? Are they together? Are they strangers? Why is she walking ahead? Are they in a fight because he is looking at his phone and not enjoying the beach or their alone time?  It really opens my imagination when I take the sharpness out, remove the reality of the picture and blur the image just enough to give it a new feel.

It makes for a  fun visual writing prompt.
