Break free from the constraints of traditional photography and let your imagination run wild! ICM, or in-camera motion techniques, provide opportunities for creative experimentation and can result in unique and visually striking images. It’s about capturing the essence of a subject through streaks of color, rough shapes, and beautiful light. The ICM approach is incredibly accessible for anyone at any level in photography. In this program, we will explore cameras, selecting settings, and talk about idea for learning to see things differently. You will walk away with the confidence to begin your own ICM adventures.




Jan has always been involved with photography in one form or another. Transitioning from her own darkroom in high school, she joined the Idaho Statesman newspaper photography staff, and worked in custom color printing labs both in Idaho and California. She became a Certified Photographic Counselor through PMA while managing Westling’s Camera in Walnut Creek, taught photography classes, and led photo field trips. She has presented a variety of photographic programs to local camera clubs in the Northern California area, and received numerous awards through competitions and juried shows. She was a presenter at the 2019 Fotoclave, was honored to receive the NANPA’s 2021 Showcase Award for First Runner Up in Altered Reality, and in 2022 was a recipient of a KVIE’s Juror Award. Jan is a member of the Sierra Camera Club of Sacramento, Viewpoint Photographic Gallery, the Professional Photographers of the Sacramento Valley, and the Photographic Society of America. Notably, she served as the Chairperson for the North American International Exhibition from 2016 to 2022, and continues to judge for clubs and venues throughout the United States. She writes: "Many of my photographic images tend to reflect a long association with classic and traditional compositions with an emphasis on nature. However, I have recently enjoyed a slight departure into the world of altered realities, ICM, and artistic stylizing. I find the challenge of creating altered images while retaining original photographic detail to be a wonderful exercise in imagination."
