I attempted to use intentional camera movement technique (ICM) to achieve true impressionist photography at a level seldom reached in the past and also addressing subjects very difficult to handle in this manner. The resulting imagery strives for the perfection and harmony of the lines when painting with the digital sensor.Fire, as a primordial element, can give rise to shapes both surreal and abstract. Through further enhancing of the colors, I tried to give the impression of sculptures of smoke.One of the defining things that place a photograph as being an artefact depicting a slice of reality, a copy of reality in a way, is the clarity of the lines and all the details that resemble the thing actually photographed. I wanted something different but sincerely straight from the camera. Something that looks like fantasy but is no Photoshop trick.
