How many times have you accidentally tripped the shutter and ended up with a random, often blurred picture? What do you do with them? Delete them? Kick yourself for forgetting to turn off your camera? Or keep them? Every now and then there is a shot among them which is a keeper. It doesn’t happen often but when it does there can be very interesting results. Odd angles, features highlighted which may have been ignored.
Take this image for example. Would I have normally taken a picture of just legs and feet? Probably not. Would I have used the odd angle? Would I have left so much negative space? Again, probably not. But for some reason I really like this picture.
So maybe next time you get an accidental exposure, have a play with it. Process it, think about how you can replicate it.
Have you any you can share? Stick them in the comments below.
