Mastering Intentional Camera Movement – Free Quick Guide

Are you familiar with the photographic acronym ‘ICM’?

If not, you’re missing out on one of the hottest trends in photography.

But this is the really cool part about ICM imaging:

You don’t need a single thing that you don’t already have… just a camera.

That’s it!

That’s all you need to create stunning images just like the one above.

So, what does ICM stand for?

‘Intentional Camera Movement’

Here is how Leanne describes it in her eBook…

“Many of us have snapped a photo before adjusting our shutter speed, or moved to scratch an itch, just as we hit the shutter button, only to find that what we snapped turned out kind of interesting.

Let’s take that one step further, and say you purposefully sweep the camera, ground to sky, while shooting a forest scene.

Now, you have moved into the realm of ‘intentional camera movement’.

This is very far from the ‘what you see is what you get’ approach to photography.

What you get… will be an intentionally blurred abstract of the image of the subject before you.

The results can be amazing, and the resulting photograph often conveys things that the “still” photograph of the same subject simply would not have been able to.”


I know I am!

In fact, after I read Leanne’s eBook, I could not wait to get out and give this cool technique a try.

I’ve become so obsessed with it that I’m thinking about developing an entirely new portfolio around it!
