Intentional Camera Movement
Intentional camera movement (ICM) is a technique of moving the camera during an exposure time that’s long enough to smear and blur the subject (between a quarter and half a second is my preference). Twisting, shaking, arcing and linear movements (at different speeds) create endless possibilities.
This collection depicts woodland areas in summer and autumn.
To help keep exposure times long, even in relatively bright light, I use a variable neutral density filter. With the aperture set between f/11 and f/16 and the shutter speed fixed, the variable ND makes the exposure easier to control.
