Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) is a technique in which long shutter speeds (often from about 0,5 seconds up) are used and the camera moved in various directions during exposure. Is not just a random camera shake, but carefully planned and controlled moving to obtain a specific result. The images created are often very painterly and impressionistic in their nature. They leave a lot of space for the viewer’s thoughts and emotions. Traditional photography uses various guidelines for light, colour, shape, form, and composition as building blocks. By moving the camera we can reach beyond these to another level which filters some things out and layers invisible things into the image. This way we it is possible to connect to our unconscious level of emotions as well as make the unseen visible.
