Blurry makes it soft and dear

In Facebook, Mommy T tagged me...
"Met Nelonie Crelencia at my nephew's first birthday party last Saturday.  She's into photography and is currently working on a children/parenthood website as a personal project.  She asked me if she can take some shots of Z and use her picture for one part of the project.  Z slept through most of the party so I was doubtful that she would be able to get any good shots.  To my surprise she captured a great shot.  If it wasn't for the headband that Z was wearing that day and the caption, I wouldn't have recognized her.  I am one proud Momma! :)"
...and I am one proud photographer!

One of the most important things to me, as a photographer, is seeing the reaction of people after you have finalized their photos.  I say 'finalize' because at the time you take their pictures, there's this question, "Did I look ok in the picture?"  Especially when people don't know you yet, there would be doubt.  Just like what Mom T wrote, "I was doubtful..."  Even I feel the same and question myself, "Did I get the right focus?"

The camera LCD is deceiving.  You browse a photo and you say it's clear.  But wait till you download it to your computer.  It blows up and you see it . . . blurry, grainy or pixilated.

Baby Z's photo is blurred.  Since it's not a photoshoot but a birthday party, I felt uneasy trying to focus amidst a busy crowd.  I kept telling myself, I could've brought a better lens.  In a rather hasty situation like that, a prime F1.4 as opposed to a zoom F3.5 would have helped me.  But I still took my chances because that day is the deadline for my photo4fun project.

So, OOF or not, I still like the photo and the way I presented it.  My co-Flickrite, H G M, said he likes "the overall soft tone" as it matches the baby's softness. Saint Claire Studio - Ginsky added, "the 'softness' (I think what you're calling not as in focus as you'd like) is perfect for this sweet newborn child.  It's a dear shot!"

Yes, it's dear, especially to proud Mama T and Little Miss Z . . . who now highlight Question 3.
