Intentional camera movement

As I finished my take-out order last Saturday, I became aware of the background image on the app.

The restaurant is using one of my photos that I had taken for them almost ten years ago.

Just a little while earlier I had seen Dale Cooper’s post about the upcoming challenge “Intentional camera movement (ICM)“.

Another coincidence!

At that bygone shoot I had done a number of exposures with intentional camera movement. It had resulted in a fun photo – more on that in a bit.

But here is one of those photos that has never been shown to anybody.

Now I don’t do “ICM” very often, much less frequently, I might add, as unintentional camera movement photos. But on that assignment, I shot some images, some with camera movement, some way out of focus, for possible use on the restaurant’s website as backgrounds.

On reviewing my photos after the shoot, I noticed one that had really “gone bad”. The session included photos of drinks. I had spent too much time adjusting lights and arranging the details, and the salt rim on the margarita glass had started to sag and slip down.

I had a good chuckle and decided to label the drink as a “hula margarita”. The proprietor had a good laugh too but did not add this “drink” to his menu. Here is that old fun image, it uses another of my blurred photos.

Margarita – hula skirt special!
