Two 3 hour sessions – Open To All participants that are comfortable using Digital as well as DSLR cameras and Participants of Photography and Meditation I (participation in Photography and Meditation l is not a prerequisite)
If you are comfortable taking photographs and if you have been trying to break out of your usual visual ‘box’, then Photography and Meditation II is for you! It is open to all those who love using the camera as a source of inspiration and introspection. These workshops are designed to bring you to the creation of your own personal narrative in the visual sense.
Meditation and visualization will be used as empowering tools to focus the mind, enhance consciousness and self-awareness. We will work on eliminating inner distraction allowing for enhanced perception and illumination. Through the contemplative method of visualization you will have an expanded experience with greater capacity for creativity. Through a series of meditation exercises, photography fieldwork and story boarding, you will create your own visual tale. We will look into techniques of using visuals as metaphor, enhanced use of color and light to add meaning and capturing the social and emotional conditions that we all share.
We will contemplate the work of professional photographers and friends and embark on an inner journey that will produce a visual narrative that is unique to you.
