Shooting the same subject but rendering either a "dreamy/creamy" mood or an "art work" style.

Yesterday I came to the idea to check what happens when shooting with intended heavy camera shake and intended overexposure. In fact I was searching a way to achieve different look from the same subject WITHOUT use of fancy gear/accessory. So, no filter, no grease (vaseline/glycerine), no thin fabric stretched on the lens. I shot 2 different styles:
1) the first one was shot at night, under tungstène light (classic bulb 75 W/but the lamp shade is frankly yellow)+ to "freeze" a bit the subject, the little pop-up fired just a bit lightning (TTL-1,7EV) Result=looks a bit like a "painting". While the exposure, camera has been moved in a quite wide circular motion until shutter closed.

2) the second one was shot under daylight + of camera flash (wanted to check what difference would be noticable in the image). Different exposure than during the night but same procedure/technique:intended camera shake+flash burst.Result: dreamy/creamy" look
In both cases, key is how long takes the exposure and how wide/quick is the motion shaking the camera. Adding a good spoon of luck and You have it! Funny, no?

Would a soft focus lens do what you are looking for?

Good evening Mac. Humm...I hesitate what to say. In fact, I never had the pleasure to mount a soft focus lens, so I have no idea what to expect from shooting with it. And on the other side, at the time I began to check what happen by when doing what I have done, I had'nt any clue what will come out. In other word, I wanted only to achieve something I don't knew what it will look like...just testing something else than just "classic" snap shot. But if You own such a "soft focus" lens, I would be really pleased to discover what it can produce.

Good evening Curmudgeon! I'm pleased You like it. In fact, I was lucky: it's a pure coïncidence where the settings+motion matched the intent to get "something different". Before pressing the shutter, I was not able to predict what was going to come out. Can we call it "programmed luck"?. Thank You for Your comment.
