Finding Beauty in Japan with Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

Experimenting with Intentional Camera Movement

Over the past two years or so, I have been enjoying using ICM techniques. It’s not as easy as it sounds. The key points are: 1) Finding good subject matter, and 2) Coming up with beautiful or interesting photos. I think I am succeeding, and look forward to doing more with this in the coming years.

Here are a few examples of my work so far, mainly from Yokohama.
