New work - Intentional Camera Movement

Just recently I've been exploring the method of intentional camera movement, or ICM for short. ICM is pretty much what it says on the tin. It's a more abstract way of making a photograph by making different types of movements or motions whilst the shutter is open on the camera, usually using a longer exposure time. When viewing the final results, they appear very impressionistic, just like an impressionist's painting would appear. The basic rules of photographic composition are still important so it's not just a case of swinging a camera around and getting a good result. This type of photography takes a bit of time and patience. Especially considering the technical problems associated with making a longer exposure photograph during the daylight hours.

So I decided to combine my love of landscape work with some ICM experimentation. The results of which you can see below. Feel free take a look at some of my recent ICM work and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your feedback either in the comments or through my social media channels.

Thanks, James
