An Abstract Scenery

Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). What is that? I had no idea when my friends at Kampret Klik played a game with ICM in theme. One of them, Misscurious83, explained me that ICM is about to move your camera while taking a picture. Oh well! That means I don’t have to panicking since I got some pictures of it, I said to myself. I didn’t know it before if it is called Intentional Camera Movement, LOL.

I am very thankful to Katie because she was the one who gave me an inspiration about the ICM as I’ve posted here: Indefinite Image: The Bright Against The Dark. Since then I’ve been learning how to do and produce a good image.

Yesterday I went to a country park for ‘chasing’ the sunset. Unfortunately it was cloudy when the sun was going down whilst it was sunshine beforehand during the daytime. When I was taking lots of pictures in the park, a voice came across to my head telling me to practice the ICM photographs. So I started playing with my Kodak Easy Share C713 by moving it around such as diagonally, horizontally, and vertically.

And here my some pictures of the ICM that I just took it yesterday.

Here another article by Juergen Roth, Mastering the Art of Intentional Camera Movement. It is very useful for learning ICM photograph.

    • Fotografi itu kan bagian dari seni dan seni itu nilainya luas dan tak terbatas, karenanya hal yang blur pun dalam fotografi bisa menjadi seni tersendiri yaitu abstrak. :mrgreen:

    • Yes, I think it’s a lot easier since we don’t have to carry the tripod as well as free to move the camera. 😀

      Thank you very much for the compliment and your support, Mark! Really appreciated it! 🙂

  1. So, so pretty! I wish I lived near some water (it’s dry here), so I could take photos like these. Using longer shutter speeds soften things, and water is perfect for it! Wonderful photos, Inge! Thanks for sharing the link with me!

    • You are very most welcome and thank you very much for your compliment and the tips, Katie! You even make me wants to practice it more especially in the water. 😀

      Yesterday afternoon I went to this place again for practicing the ICM with the trunk. Still try and learn my best. 🙂

      Thanks very much for your support. 🙂
