  • Only SANP club members may register.

Registration is closed

This event will be an opportunity to learn about and practice the intentional camera movement (ICM) photography technique and to help me celebrate my 80th birthday. It will take place on Saturday, 10 June 2023, from 4 pm until sunset at our home in Kingston, TN. You will receive the address and GPS instructions in the registration confirmation email.

This event will be limited to 20 participants due to our deck size and space concerns for parking. Do not bring guests unless they are registered as one of the 20 participants.  We will provide snacks, birthday cupcakes, drinks (water & iced tea). If you want, bring food for your dinner and any personal beverages. (Please, no birthday gifts, unless the gift is a new Canon R3 or a Tesla Model 3!) :)

Participants should bring camera equipment, walking shoes, long pants, insect spray (for ticks & bugs), hat, sunscreen, and other appropriate clothing. Ensure you have plenty of memory cards and charged batteries for your cameras.

The intentional camera movement (ICM) photography technique is done by deliberately moving the camera during an exposure and can be used for creating images with an abstract/artistic look. ICM photography goes beyond the literal capture of a subject and creates a new world invisible to our normal vision. It is not just a camera technique but a new style of photographic expression that can resemble paintings—particularly watercolor, early impressionism, or abstract impressionism. ICM compositions use shapes, colors, tones, leading lines, textures, etc., in an artistic way.

Please read or watch the information on ICM listed below BEFORE arriving. I will answer group questions at the beginning but will not present a formal overview or instruction on ICM. When the group goes into the field or woods to practice ICM, I will be available to assist people. We will meet on the deck after photographing for questions, discussion, and cupcakes.

Our 24-acre property has wooded, field, and water feature areas where you can photograph. There is plenty of acreage to photograph but not enough to get lost.
