Photography and Awareness
PHOTOGRAPHY AND AWARENESS; October 9 to 13 in Assisi, Italy
What is Mindfulness? And what is Awareness?
Bringing our full attention to anything is mindfulness. This kind of attention has
no particular goal in mind and enables a sense of ease, playfulness and an
openness to what is here and now.
Mindfulness is the mind's innate ability to hold the attention on a single focus in a relaxed
and effortless way, such as the breath when meditating, the washing up when washing
up, or the taste of the food when eating, driving when driving.
If l am photographing my friends on a mountain top l am mindful of the photographic process and aware that l am on a mountain top - so l don't step backwards and fall off!
Mindfulness and awareness make up being fully present and if either are missing we are not present.
How does all this connect to Photography?
When we bring this approach to photography it leads us into a deeper connection
with ourselves and the world around us – our subject.
Using mindfulness meditation and photography exercises you will learn how to
approach and come into relation to your subject and how to make the best use of
your camera and available light.
This workshop is open to all level of photographic experience and all kinds of cameras.
