Movement in the landscape

I have talked about Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) before and how to go about it, and this week I have some photographs that use that technique.

These were all taken on a dull day in February, so the low light level helped in getting the shutter speeds right down in order to produce the blur in the photographs.

As is the case with ICM photographs, you have to take quite a few images in order to find ones that you can use. There may be large areas of dark or light which don’t lend themselves to the overall feel of the picture, or colours may look unbalanced once you start to look through the images. It’s a very free and intuitive way of working with your camera and can yield really good pictures in the impressionist style of painting.

Experiment and enjoy.
