Zen and the Art of Photography
I’ve just posted a video of a presentation that I gave at a local camera club last week exploring my thoughts on Zen Photography.
The first is the full-length video and the second is a somewhat shorter version.
Zen photography is a mindset – a way of approaching photography – or any art.
Zen photography focuses on the experience of photography rather than the product. The image we make is very much a part of who we are and how we approach the experience of photography.
Zen Photography is a balance between the technical and artistic sides of photography.
It is about integrating photography into a well-balanced life that includes time for nature, for contemplation, for seeing all the world’s beauty.
Photography does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.– Inspired by B. K. S. Iyengar
