One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—(un)Intentional Camera Movement

Intentional Camera Movement, or ICM, is just that…movement of the camera, with purpose, to get an effect other than what is usually expected from a camera and lens, i.e., an in focus photograph of a subject.  I have tried it on occasion and actually liked the results.  One example is the shot I got in a local park and posted here in my blog.   That was intentional.  Sometimes, it is unintentional but it still can have an interesting result.  Last Sunday while I was at Gibson Ranch photographing the Cyclocross, I took several photos unintentionally, as I dodged raindrops and watched for mud puddles.  My gloved finger was depressing the shutter release without my feeling it.  When I viewed those photographs of the muddy green and yellow grass with a few oak leaves strewn about, I decided the unintentional camera movement resulted in interesting abstract photographs.  I edited them in one of the Topaz Impressions Cave Dweller filters.
