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.
