glamour photography blur #1

You know how in movies when a character is on drugs or drunk and the camera swerves or sways to give you - the viewer an approximation of the protagonists state of mind - well I've always found that a really easy way out for the film-maker and actor because surely if the actor and direction is doing what it should do - then we should be able to empathise and feel what the character is going through anyway without resorting to special effects. Well, when walking past those shopping centre photography studios with "glamorous" photos of bored housewives that are so blurred that it's difficult to make out any wrinkles let alone facial features, I like to think that maybe perhaps the photographer was rather just plain drunk, like the "intoxication" scene in the movie..
