Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

Occupy Fairfield (part 1)

We have a reenactment weekend this year when the town is celebrating one of the small skirmishes outside of Gettysburg that took place at the same time as Gettysburg.  The battle of Fairfield took place on July 3, 1863, and you can read more about it on wikipedia here. You can read more about the reenactment here. But enough of that.

Focus is something that I really think makes or break an actor and whether you are performing on stage or even in a less structured event, a performer must always focus.  To drop focus creates a moment where that reality that you have worked so hard to create is lost and audiences are forced to begin the process of believing what you are doing all over again.  This shot captures a moment of a loss in focus, where the one reenactor on the end dropped focus on the Sergeant and took all the believability out of the situation.  I tried to  emphasize it by taking the shot out of focus, and have you, the audience, realize the time it takes to try and see the clear picture.

I hope it makes sense to you and that it’s not too artsy/teachery 🙂  May 5, 2012

      1. Well, if anyone’s is iffy it’s mine! At least some people agree that a wobbly background constitutes ‘unfocused’… Haha. Hope the re-enactment was a good show!
