Mindful Photography in Nature (Part 1)
August 18 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am EDTFree
Mindful nature photography is about much more than just seeing and creating pleasing images. It’s about how you relate to the present moment. Your camera becomes a tool to expand your awareness of the present moment. Mindful photography can enrich your life by cultivating: focus, presence, patience, beginner’s mind (seeing something as if for the first time), seeing beyond forms, and heart qualities such as caring, connection, and gratitude.
This program will take a contemplative, relaxed, present approach and will focus more on process than end result. (It’s not a “technique” class.). It will open you up to new ways of seeing and being present in the natural world with your camera.
There are two parts to this program. The first will take place on Zoom (Wed., 8/18), and the second will take place in-person at Hudson Crossing Park (Fri., 8/20). The Zoom session will offer an understanding of mindful photography in nature, and the in-person session will consist of guided practices.
The instructor, Susan Meyer, is both a professionally trained and certified mindfulness meditation teacher and an award-winning nature photographer.
Registration is required, through the library’s website. The Zoom link will be emailed to you after you register.
