Armand Dijcks Captures Everday Items Uniquely

Rotterdam photographer Armand Dijcks has figured out how to capture time in motion by using intentional camera movement (ICM) photography. His abstract Lightscapes series features familiar items — a chair, kitchen mixer or piece of clothing — transformed into something unexpected and new.

But intentional camera movement photography is not the only way he captures time. Armand Dijcks’s also created some edgy, experimental short films. Liquid Time explores the combination of very short shutter speeds with slow-motion using the Canon 5D Mark II, a popular prosumer HDDSLR camera that’s perfect for intentional camera movement (ICM) photography because of its large sensor.

Facets is another short film and the result of playing around with his iPhone to see how he could use the built in video camera in new and unusual ways. While it’s not intentional camera movement (ICM) photography, the film does give you a sense of being stuck in time. Stats for Abstract Movement Photography Trending: Older & Mild
