I see YOU
The voice of an image- exploring one’s psychology through the camera lens.
A famous quote says ‘’A picture is worth a thousand words.’’ Through photographs and the reactions that they invoke in people, we can see someone’s needs from an entirely different angle, often discovering underlying thoughts and feelings. From the moment the first photograph was taken in 1826 until the iPhone arrived on June 29, 2007, photography took time. By its nature, it recorded history. It said, “I was here.”
Today, cameras play an important role in keeping us all up-to-date with each other’s news and stories. From glass plates to paper prints to digital imaging, the photo revolution’s intention remains the same—to immortalize our world. It’s unbelievable we’ve come this far, but we can’t wait to see what’s next.
We look at what confronts our eyes but do we see the scene photographically? We arrive at those iconic locations envisioning the shot in our heads but do we connect with it? We set up our tripods to get “the shot” but do we explore all options? Let your images express who you are. Look inside your photographic inner psyche and become one with the camera and lens.
Through the camera lens, we can let go of our preconceptions of our view of the world around us and actually “see” what is in front of us. Mindfulness in photography can lead to a greater awareness of our surroundings and of ourselves, and of our feelings about how we interact with our world. By focusing your mind on what you’re photographing, you can let go of your worries and anxieties. By learning about mindfulness in photography, this skill can be used in other areas of your life.
Participants are required to bring their own camera.
