Why you want to make your lens take blurred pictures - or lomo on himo.
The continual mantra of sharpness is so prevalent in photography that we often forget the pleasure of a "pleasing lack of definition".
Softness in an image can build a different perspective, a sense of mystery, or delicacy, or age.
This image is almost high-key, certainly there are lot of lighter tones in the image. There is also a reduced contrast range, though actually there are tones from deepest black to complete white. However, the bulk of the tones are held within the mid to light grey range.
The posing is simple; the positioning of Harriett on the right with a hand to the shoulder and gaze to Leah on the left creates a link between the two models.
The vignette (added in post production) adds a reminder of vintage photography, along with off-white warm-toning, that is entirely in keeping with the softness of the overall image.
Technically this is so straightforward. It is a plastic bag placed over the lens. There is a whole in the bag so I can control whether I want any part of the image on focus or none of it.
The plastic bag throws off any sharpness and also diffuses the light.
Coupled with some over-exposure almost all definition is removed from the image.
