Photo Tip #31 - Purposeful "blurry" photos

Grainy photos are better than blurry ones is another common adage that makes its way around photography discussions.

This is not true in all cases. What if you want blur to show motion? What if you want to show something abstractly through the use of blurred fields of color? In these instances grain is not better than blur. So just do what looks right and not what others tell you is right.
