This is my favourite one so far. The landscape is recognisable and the artistic effect enriched the final result

Thanks, phppi. I hope you enjoy trying out this Intentional Camera Movement technique

You get great effects from the camera moevment! Maybe partly because of the long rectangular, shape, it makes me think of a Chinese landscape painting. But also like something deep under water, and plunging.

Thanks, Lynn. These aren’t pure ICM. Besides cropping, I do a lot of dodging and burning and sometimes cloning. I figure it’s allowed as more playing. 😁

Sometimes I like regarding the original photograph as one element in an eventual image. Most of my work is straight documentation, though.

I like the idea of Chinese landscape painting—also a deep-water plunge. Love how your imagination works.

I like this one very much – maybe your best so far in this series. 🙂

Thank you, Adrian. I’m sorry not to have replied earlier. I’ve been on the road. Tonight my husband asked me about my intent in making these images with Intentional Camera Movement, and I had to confess that all I’m doing is playing.

I don’t think that you should using the word “playing”, because that lowers / cheapens the intent / value of what you are doing. What you are actually doing is exploring the capabilities of your camera in unconventional ways, you are seeing more of what is possible. And, as always, an image is good irrespective of the ways in which it was produced.

I find your comment really interesting, Adrian. Many years ago a fairly well-known artist chastised me for calling one of my drawings a “doodle.” It was abstract, and I attached no particular meaning to it, though I did like it. The commonality here seems to be that I must attach strong meaning to my art or else dismiss it. Perhaps I can call these works “studies.” That gives them a bit more gravitas yet doesn’t make me feel pretentious. Thank you for calling me on this issue, Adrian.
