Introduction to Mindful Photography
Time & Location
About the Event
We combine the elements of mindfulness and photography as we truly believe in the power of their two practices to have routeing effects. It's amazing how just a few minutes after starting the practice, our thoughts change, slowly moving towards relaxation, just being here and now. Photography encourages mindfulness by heightening our awareness of seeing. With mindful photography, you can use the camera as a tool to learn to be present. You’ll notice more of the beauty that’s all around you, and direct your attentional focus.
The wonderful thing is that we don't need advanced equipment or a lot of time for this kind of photography. Simple, very friendly exercises have a power that we often forget. This workshop is suitable for people of all photographic abilities with an interest in mindfulness and curiosity about how this can be applied to photography.
WE LEARN ABOUT:
How to get started? Why is it important?
How it can support me to develop the art of seeing?

“The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction).
