CLASS DESCRIPTION

Photography is the language of light and reflection. Seeing through a camera encourages us to slow down and become more mindful of the beauty around us. 

In this retreat we will explore the connection between meditation and photography.  You will learn techniques to bring mindfulness and awareness into your photography practice, as well as ways to more fully express yourself, your senses and your feelings in the images you make.

Reflective focus practices using your eye and your camera will build your image-making skills, while showing you the value of “seeing through quiet eyes.”  

We will also explore how to add your unique creative spirit to your images by enhancing them on your iPhone, iPad or Android device with Photo Apps that are easy to use. 

In addition, you will learn to create a simple, zen-like book as a container for the “Meditative Moments” you experience in your image-making.

Suitable for all levels and all cameras, including phone cameras.
