ICM Works

Open to coincidences but at the same time intentional… This is what I like about ICM Photography. It is just like life itself, you try your best to plan it, but the unexpected is always there… And it is the actual spirit though…. If everything went as we planned, life would be quite boring…. Same in ICM Photos… You plan to reach a target, and when you come to the end coincidences become part of your creativity, your existence relies on your plans and coincidences. I hope you like my work.

In intentional camera movement (ICM), a camera is moved during the exposure for a creative or artistic effect. This causes the image points to move across the recording medium, producing an apparent streaking in the resulting image. The process involves the selection of an aperture and the use of filters to achieve a suitable shutter speed. Proponents experiment both with the duration of the exposure and the direction and amount of camera movement while the shutter is open. Generally, exposures of 1/20 to 1/2 second give the best results and an optimum seems to be 1/8th of a second.
