Abstract photography and camera techniques are the focus of an upcoming online workshop hosted by the Delta Photo Club.
In “Art & Artistry of Intentional Camera Movement,” noted Vancouver photographer and instructor Christopher Weeks will discuss how developing an eye for art and abstract compositions and learning to use a variety of intentional camera movement (ICM) techniques can open up new perspectives and photo opportunities for any genre of photography you practice, according to a press release.
The presentation will focus on creating images with printed art as a goal, developing an abstract perspective, ICM and multiple-exposure ICM photography, including special considerations for processing those images.
A former commercial/advertising photographer for over two decades, Weeks’ work has been published internationally and he has received numerous awards for his photography. Since moving to Vancouver from the United States, he now works exclusively on the artistic side of photography.
Weeks’ art primarily focuses on urban and nature abstracts, ICM and multiple-exposure ICM, as well as capturing the often moody landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. He also pioneered a multiple-image ICM style of photography that features a vibrant motion-capture aesthetic.
“Christopher is known for his engaging, quick-paced and informal presentation style. His talks and workshops are a balance of inspiring photographs, image-making philosophy and technique, all aimed at inspiring workshop participants to clarify their vision and develop the skills to express their unique creative spirit,” according to a press release.
