Intentional Camera Movement

Intentional camera movement is basically when the camera is moving during the exposure. Exposure times can vary depending on the intended effect. This isn’t a technique I turn to often, as I find it only really works in certain situations such as panning or creating abstract images. I love to use this technique when I’m in the forest, especially when there is lots of colour. For the shot below, I kept a relatively quick shutter speed so the viewer could still make sense of the snow, trees, greenery, and blue sky. At first it looks blurry, but it doesn’t take much imagination to figure out what’s going on. Bumping up the saturation gives it a painterly look and feel.
