I use Google Photos as a back up most of our family photos, of which 99.9% are taken with my phone.
As my storage was close to the limit, Google was trying to help me remove photos that I might not want anymore, and one of the groups of files it selected was “blurry photos”.
I imagine if you only had family photos, and wanted a collection of sharply focused casual portraits, and most of your pictures were blurred due to poor light and/or an unsteady hand, this is a useful feature.
The trouble is, for me, most of my favourite photos are blurred, or put another way, intentionally out of focus.
So thanks Google, but I think I’ll keeping all of the blurred ones, they’re like that for a reason.
How about you? What are your thoughts on intentionally out of focus photographs, and what proportion of your images are blurred in some way?
