First book publication : variations in TREES

VARIATIONS IN TREES | LES VARIATIONS DE L’ ARBRES
( Available December 2017 |Disponible Décembre 2017)

– A photographic journey through uncommon compositions of an ordinary subject.
Trees, we often pass them by without even really seeing them –

– Une recherche photographique de compositions autour d’un sujet ordinnaire.
Une arbre qui nous est famillier et à côté duquel on passe sans même le remarquer –

“This book will take you in a graphical journey of subtle colors and structures, because Variations in Trees is a graphical search for the innermost impressions of the Auvergne trees. As you turn the pages, they will lead you in a dance that is both intimately photographic and deeply inspiring” –

“Ce livre va vous transporter au fil d’un voyage graphique fait de couleurs et de formes subtiles. Variations in Trees est une quête graphique des plus profondes impressions issues des arbres d’Auvergne. A mesure que vous tournerez ces pages, vous serez entraînés dans une danse intimement photogénique et d’une inspirante profondeur” –

First video debut | Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

ICM Technique
by Kristel Schneider

Fresh spring greens with sunlight
A couple of months ago the local newspaper La Montagne asked me if I was willing to join in their video series “La Montage Images” featuring local photographers.  Their aim was to create short videos to promote photography to a wider public. The first season hosted all  the photographers who work for the local newspaper and because of the success they decided to start a second season  along with local photographers who would explain a photo subject to the general public. So not too technical, but rather show that photography can be fun to explore. I decided to talk about ICM technique –  a technique which to be used whenever you want to create abstract images by moving your camera about.

At the end of April we did the video shoot in a woody area, close to Ravel in Auvergne | France. My timing was right for the fresh green leaves on trees, which resulted in a nice
subject for the image example. I must say,  it was difficult to stay serious while I was  talking, especially as I had two cameras pointing at me while a guy with  big headphones and microphone was moving about.
I first only agreed on doing this video if I could speak English. Indeed I did not feel comfortable enough to do this all in French – hence the voice-over performed by a French native speaker.
English link below the video.
