Mindful Photography group

Hi there everyone, if you know someone interested in Mindful Photography, the power of being present, capturing magic; do check out this new workshop group: http://www.meetup.com/Mindful-Photography-Workshops.

Afternoon surprise get-together.

(no charge - non commercial)

This is the first meetup op Mindful Photography, to get to know each other a bit better. To inspire eachother and just enjoy our presence together.
Let's make this a surprise meeting, a little experiment in which we discover the power of spontaneity.

Everything starts with our full presence (the feeling you can't find online).

I want to introduce you a little bit to Mindful Photography by letting you get in touch with this naturalness that arrises when strangers get together and just let it be.

Everyone in this meetup group is invited, including the ones that just drop in.
Of course you can bring your camera along, but we might not go out and shoot, so use your intuition. We will see what we decide to do together once we're together.

This is a non-commercial get-together.

Organized by: Maurice Spees - www.mauricespees.com

    Fantastic first meetup, at all levels! However all the interesting and friendly people made it impossible to get a grip on mindful photographing:) Will give it another try! Can anyone tell me if this is the right place to reach participants if I want to share a link I promised to share?Greets and till next time!

    A great moment, where we learned a new perspective, so useful in capturing the beauties of the moment. And all this while having a lot of fun!

    Wow that's a lot of people. I don't know if everyone is really planning to go this saturday. Otherwise I like to split the group, and do another meetup another saturday. So who's up for another saturday? Just let me know. Actually this meetup was intended for not more then 25 people. But when you're all coming, of course this would be great. Just let me know your thoughts. Have a great time.

    Hey Maurice,
    Just to put down one tiny piece of feedback I shared with you at the end of the meetup. It will be nice to separate the socializing with the mindful photographing/ to allow flexible length of the practice. Guide participants walking in group to be aware and take care of each other, but limit the amount of verbal discussion (socializing). The group can choose to head back to the meeting point in 20 or 30 minutes (flexible length).

    Hi Maurice, Just wanted to say best of luck tomorrow. How exciting that you have had such a fantastic response to the first meetup. I am sure it will be wonderful. I have 15 for a shoot tomorrow here in Boston and will also be practicing mindfulness. You and I are working together already, just not in the same place... enjoy tomorrow.

    I wish I could have joined you. It sounds wonderful, but I am doing a voluntary shoot for a campaign to raise money for Cancer research all day.
