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)“.
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.

Hahaha, these are great and that “unseen” shot is really mouthwatering.
Thank you. Dale
ICM can be fun, pity about your margarita 🙂
