This is one I took in Scotland last year. usually the tree abstracts are a dark background, this one had a blue sky and not too many treesJune 2, 2018 at 6:39 pm #16440
Wow! It wouldn’t look out of place in a modern art gallery. It looks more like a painting than a photograph. I find it quite striking and dramatic. Did you do much post procession to it? I think you must have kept the camera vertical otherwise the light sky would have merged with the trees and the effect wouldn’t have been as strong. Thanks for posting this Wallace.June 5, 2018 at 5:47 pm #16490
This one is as taken with no processing.June 8, 2018 at 3:57 pm #16516
Another type of ICM is panning below a couple of examples.June 8, 2018 at 3:58 pm #16517June 8, 2018 at 6:40 pm #16518
Thanks for posting these Wallace. To be honest I hadn’t thought of panning when I considered ICM but of course it is. It’s probably the main use of ICM. I like the first shot best. This is my type of panned photo where the subject is sharp where you want to see it sharp while the blurred background and wheels give a great impression of speed. You’ve the right shutter speed and shown a great panning technique. However, I’m sorry but I’m not so keen on the second image. I think a panned photo like this needs a sharp reference point somewhere in it to relate the the blur. That’s just my opinion of course and I appreciate others might disagree with me.June 10, 2018 at 5:52 pm #16525
Not quite ICM but the subject MovedJune 10, 2018 at 5:53 pm #16526June 12, 2018 at 10:14 am #16549
No, not really ICM, but an useful technique to master for the right subject. I like the results which turns a normal picture into one which demands more attention. It records the detail not seem in normal viewing. Will you tell us how you did it?June 12, 2018 at 4:51 pm #16551
The picture below was created when I zoomed during the exposure.
This was done by rotating the camera. I think I used a shutter speed of around 1/30 and twisted the camera at different speeds. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but certainly eye catching.June 13, 2018 at 10:05 pm #16552
I thought I’d best post a photo where I’ve used ICM. As most members will know I’ve now entered a couple of images using ICM but neither has scored that well. Lets be honest they are ‘Marmite’ shots and are an aquired taste. I do enjoy trying out this technique but it can be very difficult to get a decent image. Anyway here’s one from Delamere Forest that is a different view from the one that I entered last season.

Thanks for posting this Paul. I agree that these are marmite photos and not to everyone’s taste. I don’t like marmite, but do like some of the creative images ICM can produce. I think your photo is of a similar subject to Wallace’s version, but they are so different. I would guess that you’ve either moved the camera quicker than Wallace did or you used a slower shutter speed. I thought you deserve a lot of credit for being so brave to enter ICM image in a camera club competition as they’re so different from the run of mill entries and throw judges off balance. I don’t think they know how to judge them so just give a mediocre mark.
I like your photo and think it looks like a pencil sketch. I think we’ve all seen this type of image in an art gallery selling for hundreds of pounds!June 13, 2018 at 10:31 pm #16555
I will be entering more ICM images next season, I’m determined to find a judge that does like them. It is a very hit or miss technique….well more like miss,miss,miss,miss,miss,miss,HIT.
I attempted some seascapes using ICM (horizontal movement) in Scotland on our recent holiday but I’m not happy with any of them. I will be trying again in Cornwall in August. If I get a good one it may be entered this year.June 15, 2018 at 10:17 pm #16567
Cannot say the theme grabs me but each to there own. Used to experiment with camera on a revolving gramaphone turntable. Things like on a short time exposure and in a darkened room and flashing the light on and off as revolving.Everyone can do this.Fix camera to front light bracket on your bicycle and take short time exposures as cycling in traffic. Keep up with those in front and they will be fairly sharp.Traffic coming to you and all roadside is blurred. You could do this on a horse except they do not have light brackets.
