You get some wonderful magical surprises when you experiment. For this sweet shot of my son, I used a Diana+ 110mm soft focus telephoto Lomography lens.
In addition, I created the surreal blurred look by using trailing curtain sync with my on-camera flash. This is another technique that is very nice to have in your bag of tricks.
While I loved the warm tones in the initial image, I felt the motion and shapes in the photo were the stars. So I added a bit of grain and converted the final image to black and white.
Day 359 of my 365 photo a day project.
