Winter Wonderland ME ICM
Okay, I'll be honest, winter is not my favorite season. Most of the time it's to cold for a freeze baby like me to venture outside. I really really have to talk myself into it and I usually don't last very long.
So when we have weather like we did last week, mild temps with beautiful sticky snow, I try to take advantage and get outside to explore with my camera. I have to admit it was AMAZING. It truly was a winter wonderland. There was a quiet beauty that can bring a sense of calm. I had a ton of fun
experimenting with ICM and came home with quite a few keepers. I love the high key minimalism that you can create with a winter scene.
The image above was created using ME ICM, or multiple exposure intentional camera movement, to create that painterly look that I love so much.
This week we are experiencing a winter storm warning that includes possible blizzard conditions with wind gusts up to 50 mph and wind chills as lo was -35. No venturing out this week!
Painting with a Camera
In the past year or so I started experimenting with ICM (in camera movement) photography. I have become quite addicted to exploring this technique to create images that are abstract
or impressionistic. I love the soft painterly feel and the minimalism that ICM can create.
It can bring attention to tone and texture in a artistic way and create movement in an otherwise static scene. It's so much fun to create unique images using this technique.
