Challenge 2: Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

//Challenge 2: Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

Welcome to week 2 of our 52-week photo challenge!
Thanks for being on the journey, and being committed to improving your skills.

This week, we’re going to explore the amazing world of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). It’s a cool and clever technique where – in many cases – you intentionally move your camera during capture so that the end result is a uniquely blurred image. 

But there’s SO much more to it than that. Check out this blog post for a terrific primer on ICM from our friend (and ICM “guru”) Roxanne Bouché Overton! A simple search on Google will yield scores of educational tips and thousands of images for inspiration as well.

The Scoop:

  • Submissions will be accepted until the end of the day, Sunday, January 14th, 2024
  • Submit 3 images by clicking the following link
  • Please submit images in the JPEG format and uploading photos that are at least 2500 on the long side is recommended for the highest quality.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
