Creative Collective 059: Accidental Pictures

I didn’t mean to take this picture on my Fujifilm X70. I kind of like the abstractness of it.

Have you ever accidentally taken a picture? You had a camera in your hand, and it was powered on, but you didn’t mean to activate the shutter and capture an image. I’ve done this more times than I’d like to admit. Most often these accidental pictures are just deleted, but occasionally I will keep them because they’re interesting in some way, or at least more interesting than they should be. Let’s take a look!

    Hey Ritchie, Great fun topic this time!
    Only recently have I put one of those accidental shots as wallpaper on my macbook 🤓

    Legs and feet are classics of course 🫣

    Totally agree with Ritchie. A recent one of mine was taken on Catlabs film with a Voigtlander Vito B. Even more surprising was that the exposure was acceptable.

    I think these accidental images could be interesting to post on IG. #accidentalpictures

      I reserved them exclusively for the Creative Collective members 😀

      Jokes aside, maybe one or two would be “good enough” for social media inclusion, but I don’t think the rest are. I appreciate the encouragement!
