RPS: De-Stress with Photography with Author JOHN HUMPHREY
Amersham Studios is proud to have developed this fascinating workshop on portraiture for the Royal Photographic Society.
Is this for me?
This course is for anyone who wants to use the medium of photography as a way to de-stress. You don’t require an photographic skills and the workshop is relaxed and participative. Bring your camera and some of your photographs (as prints or on memory stick).
Why will this make me a better photographer?
These days we are exposed to constant change. We are challenged by work, relationships, money, health, travel, politics, IT – to name just a few! As a result the stress reaction – sometimes known as fight or flight – is being triggered all the time. This is not just unpleasant, it is damaging. Our bodies are not designed to handle the hormonal changes of the stress response and the result can be both physical and mental damage.
Photography can come to the rescue. In this one-day workshop, John presents an eight-step programme for using photography as a route to mental wellbeing. The day is a combination of photographic presentations and exercises designed to manage stress and provide lasting tools to ensure a balanced life and an antidote to modern day pressures.
Key Learning points:
Achieve the condition of Flow, the state of immersion in energised focus.
Find beauty in ordinary things to become fully conscious of our environment.
Set a photography goal as an escape route from everyday pressures.
Become an artist and let your ‘right brain’ have its say.
