ICM (Intentional Camera Movement)

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: You Pick It prompt.

Shortly before Ann-Christine posted the prompt I had been for a walk. One of the things I did on the walk was continue my experiments with intentional camera movement.

As a result I decided to look back at some of the photos from my experiments with intentional camera movement. Specifically the photos of trees on my walks.

Lens-Artists: You Pick It!

Trees in leaf in mid summer. A previously unedited photo from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

CMMC: Contains two A

Bare trees in the snow in winter. A photo from about six weeks ago when I was limited to certain routes when out for a walk.

Trees in a mixture of leaf litter and patches of snow. A photo from a few weeks ago after a thaw. The mixture of leaf litter and snow on the ground gives the foreground a different appearance.

Bare trees in early spring. Taken last Saturday afternoon and the photo that gave me the idea for this post.

Thanks Sue. It’s something I have been playing with for years but the long winter and grey skies started me playing again. There wasn’t much else to photograph at times.

I’m a fan of the technique David and use it often. I especially like using it when the trees are reflected in water. My absolute favorite is using it on birch trees which have such lovely coloration/patterns – they make stunning ICM subjects. Sadly we don’t have them here in the south. Enjoyed your series and your different results – great idea for the week’s challenge.

Thanks Ann-Christine. Having restarted my ICM of trees in the winter I’m going to try to keep going for the year.
