What is ICM Photography?
ICM Photography is intentional camera movement photography. It is moving the camera with a purpose to create an abstract looking photograph. You can pan the camera side to side, tilt the camera up and down, move the camera diagonally, spin the camera, or zoom in or out with the camera lens all while the photo is being exposed.
Here is an example of panning the camera sideways:

ICM is all about experimenting with your camera settings and movement. It takes a steady hand because you have to move without the tripod. My favorite part about ICM is that every exposure you will create something different. You just have to experiment with the speed you are moving the camera, or how long the shutter is opened. Let your imagination go wild.
