Why do you take photos? Does it bring you joy? Do you want to discover a powerful technique for capturing the beauty of your life through photography? 8 secrets will be revealed during this exciting workshop. Focus on photography as a mindful practice in this full day special workshop. This approach is related to Miksang or “good eye” methodology and includes mindfulness practices for slowing down to experience the beauty of life through photography.
This workshop is for you if:
You want to discover how to take a photo that is the "equivalent" of your experience of beauty. That means the image matches the experience you had in the moment. You want to create photos of ordinary things in a way that helps us see how extraordinary they really are. You want to discover how to creatively see the essence of something and capture that quality in your photos using color, light and texture. The Flow-tography Workshop reveals the secret power of beauty as a source of creative energy and wellbeing. This contemplative practice offers a way to cultivate your relationship with the mystical in daily life. After 10 minutes of mindfulness, your creative self will wake up and start taking amazing photos. You will feel this shift and be able to make it at will. Once you know now to enter the flow state or "zone" your photos will be fresh and creative.
Whether you are just starting out or have been taking photos for years, you will benefit from this fresh approach to looking through the lens.
Don't be surprised if after attending this program you see your photos with a new sense of awe and wonder. You may even be thinking, wow did I take that photo? The answer will be yes, yes, yes!
The deeper your experience of beauty the higher the quality of your photos. In this workshop you will discover simple ways to see the world with fresh eyes and capture the beauty of life like never before.
