“Painting and Drawing with Light”

INTRODUCTION

The photography club I belong to asked its members to produce some images using the photographic technique of ‘Intentional Camera Movement‘ also known as ICM. In intentional camera movement, I am required to move the camera during its exposure in the hope of acquiring an image that appears creative or artistic in effect. It can take a bit of doing but is quite liberating as it frees you up to do something out of the norm for photography.

So this photography adventure took hubby and me to one of our coastal beaches in Melbourne, Victoria – Australia, the famous Brighton Beach.  On this part of the beach looking over Port Phillip Bay, famous colourful Bathing Boxes can be admired.  The sea was beautifully calm and the sky a pretty blue with dark clouds looming in the far distance.  I managed to create two ICM images – one of the Bathing Boxes and the other looking out over the ocean.  Fortunately, the beach wasn’t crowded and I was able to photograph this iconic location without having to dodge people on the beach or in the ocean.  A beautiful sunny day and a wonderful way to spent time at the seaside!

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.

Happy photography all – © Karen Robinson – July 2021
