20th July – RPS INTRO TO MINDFULNESS, MEDITATION & PHOTOGRAPHY
Amersham Studios is proud to have developed this fascinating workshop on mindfulness for the Royal Photographic Society.
Is this for me?
This workshop is ideal if you want to explore mindfulness, meditation or simply re-think your creativity.
You will learn new ways of thinking and go on location during the afternoon.
You will need to bring a camera, boots, a coat and an open mind.
You will have the opportunity to shoot and put you new found skills into practice.
Why will this make me a better photographer?
Recognising the healing power of the mind and the importance of silence, Andrew Scriven 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.
