    For me, it's all about making the image feel right. I'm always trying to invoke an emotional response; the technique has to support that emotion. Sometimes that means sharpness and extra contrast, and sometimes that means shallow depth of field and/or lack of real focus. Diffusion, front focus, shooting through vaseline- or dirt-covered filters, etc, are used when it helps me communicate emotion.

    Technique for technique's sake does nothing for me.
