In intentional camera movement (ICM), a camera is moved during the exposure for a creative or artistic effect. This causes the image points to move across the recording medium, producing an apparent streaking in the resulting image.

The process involves the selection of an aperture and the use of filters to achieve a suitable shutter speed. Proponents experiment both with the duration of the exposure and the direction and amount of camera movement while the shutter is open. I took these images on the beach of Tarifa, and is my first attempt with this technique. I find the result pretty pleasing and “Zen’ish”.

I was taking the images in bright daylight, and added a LEE Bigstopper to get the shutterspeed (about 4 sec.) I needed to achieve the result I wanted.
