This week on the podcast I had a wonderful conversation with Valda Bailey. Valda is a UK photographer specializing in intentional camera movement (ICM) and multiple exposure work, which she often combines as part of her workflow. It was great to hear about her creative process and techniques, which we covered extensively in this episode of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!
On this week's episode, we discuss:
Valda's journey as a photographer and why she has gravitated towards ICM and double/multiple exposure image-making,
The role of abstraction in her photography,
Lots of practical advice on the techniques of ICM and multiple exposure, including equipment choice,
How to choose what to include and exclude in this type of work,
Formalism in photographic art,
And a lot more!
Other topics/links discussed on the podcast this week:
My article on NPN about Nature Photography as Art.
Valda's Book, "We May as Well Dance."
