Introduction to mindfulness, meditation and how this links to photography
Recognising the healing power of the mind and the importance of silence, Andrew Scriven www.andrewscriven.co.uk/about/ considers the significance of intention and connection when shooting a photograph.

The workshop will explore various procedures and techniques that can be used to help every photographer connect more fully with the present moment, the goal being to help restore peace and balance in our bodies and minds.

Start 10am

Short meditation

Considering the power of our minds and reality as a perception.
The importance of setting and intention.
The first exercise with your camera will be to focus attention on the things we are seeing - colour, contrast, movement, people.
The second exercise will look at blurring the lines of division, experimenting with shutter speeds and movement to represent reality.
The gift of acceptance

Lunch

Using music to focus our attention on the beauty around us and exploring our place within it.
Third photography exercise - Seeing and being beauty.
