Photographer Ken Spence reveals how to capture ‘ICM’ images and explore the world of Intentional Camera Movement photography in the current issue of Better Photography.

Writes Ken, “So here’s the challenge: You have your camera in your hands, the light is perfect, the colours are stunning and there are some strong compositional lines, but the details are just plain boring or, even worse, distracting. How do you create a photo that you and others might enjoy? Try using intentional camera movement to break through the barrier.

“The technique is straightforward. Set your camera to shutter (time) priority exposure mode and set a slow shutter speed (1/6 second or longer), then pan both your head and camera in a straight line while pressing the shutter button. I refer to this as the ‘swish’ technique. 

“There is every chance that those boring or distracting details in the scene will be transformed into interesting textures. Even better, the perfect light, stunning colours and strong lines can be beautifully accentuated.”
