Hi, my name is Carol and I've been a member here for I guess it's 10 years or more, but I left for awhile a couple years ago. Bored with facebook, I decided to return here. I have an education in fine art and I consider myself a visual artist, not a photographer; photography is simply the medium I use. I do intentional camera movement [ICM] and creative blur. I'm hoping that people here will understand that my images have the look they do because of personal choice and not assume I don't know what I'm doing LOL. I have been at this for several years and I enjoy it and am looking for a place to share what I do. Facebook groups are nice, but the work produced there....well, it seems anything goes in regards to ICM and I've grown tired of looking at squiggles of colored lines. ICM is much more than waving your camera around wildly and calling it a photo. All the photos I post here will be finished works unless otherwise specified. I use a couple techniques in conjunction with camera movement to create my "creative blur" It's not a style for everyone, but I enjoy it and hope you will like my photos too and I hope I enjoy being back at TPF.
