"I am more concerned with portraying an interpretation rather than a literal representation of what I see before me." - Valda Bailey

I recently participated in a BaileyChinnery workshop in Tuscany, Italy. We created unique art using several multiple exposures and blend modes done in camera in real time. It’s complicated. Only a few cameras, specifically some Canon and Nikon, have these features. More importantly, the result can be unique semi-abstract expressionistic art that can be created in camera. I strive to create art that expresses the light, textures, colors and movement in the world around us, rather than simply an often-photographed pretty or iconic scene. More art in this style can be seen at New Work. Enjoy the slide show!

Accommodations were at the Villa Mangiacani (not to make you feel bad).
