Until now, I was only offering a handful of images as canvases, prints, and metal prints through my shop. I was getting requests that were challenging for me to self-fulfill plus the time it took to input things manually got to be a little too time-consuming. I thought I'd try something different...
I recently integrated the Fine Art America shopping experience with my online Fine Art Photography & Ocean Art Print Store. Available now is a larger selection of photos and a wider variety of products to choose from such as framed prints, acrylic prints, wood prints, posters and greeting cards.
Sort by products, size, shape or check out the galleries. When you place an order, I'd like to know how your shopping experience was; how was check out, did the item arrive promptly, was it everything you had hoped for? Like I said I am trialing this and want to ensure my customers are happy. Go to the store.
Shop with confidence - If you're not happy with a purchase that you make for any reason, you can return it to us within 30 days of the order date less shipping charges.
Earlier this year I started experimenting with a technique that I wasn't too familiar with. The technique is called "Intentional Camera Movement Photography" or ICM. The idea is to introduce blur into the photograph using a slow shutter speed (Somewhere between 1/4 of a second up to a few seconds) while moving the camera vertically or horizontally.
Intentional camera movement photography is different from long exposure and camera panning photography. Generally, long exposure photography involves the use of a tripod to avoid shake while producing a sharp, in-focus image of fixed structures. Night shots, car headlights, fishing docks, etc. Camera panning photography uses a low shutter speed while following a moving car, bicycle or surfer.
Some photographers may frown on ICM as they do at HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography but I find it quite fun to do and pleasing to the eye. I've only experimented with ocean seascapes but look forward to trying it on other subjects. My philosophy is to try something new, experiment, learn, have fun, repeat.
Ocean Art Wave Photography Series -
This morning I went to the beach and tried a slight variation of the intentional camera movement photography technique. Rather than moving the camera vertically or horizontally, the lens is either zoomed in or out while the shutter is open. While this is nothing new, I had yet to try it. Interesting results. Let me know your thoughts.
