Photography podcast #101 features an interview with one of my favorite photographers, fine art photographer Michael Orton. In this podcast we talk about deliberately moving your camera during the exposure. Normally, this is FORBIDDEN and you do everything in your power to keep the camera as still as possible while shooting. But Michael has a very unique way of seeing and has again broken the rules. He has created a unique and fabulous new portfolio of one-of-a-kind abstract landscape images, by way of compound camera movements that I now refer to as Orton Compound Camera Movements or OCCM. This podcast discusses deliberate camera movements for creative effect.
Michael Orton is a fine art photography pioneer. First he created Orton Imagery, AKA the Orton effect some 30ish years ago. This technique has been used by tens of thousands of photographers and has become so popular that Adobe Elements 10 now features an action called the Orton Effect. I’d bet hard that Michael’s technique involving compound camera movements also develops a cult-like following in the years to come. Thanks so much Michael!
