“The primary technique I use is called Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). The effects achieved are created in-camera. My intention in creating abstract images in-camera is two-fold: to emphasize the form and energy of a scene as I sense it at the moment of capture, and to create a painterly effect without the use of the many Photoshop plugins available. Trees, as my favorite subjects, lend themselves beautifully to those techniques. They soar or droop, blow in the wind, snuggle under snow, or bud in beautiful colors. I hope, with this exhibit, to increase awareness and appreciation of this creative variation of photography, not widely seen, and how nature comes to life and takes on a new dimension using these techniques.”
