WHAT IS MINDFUL PHOTOGRAPHY?

RUSS HARRIS ON MINDFULNESS

“Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.”

– The Greater Good Science Centre (UC Berkeley)

 

It can be practiced by everybody, and is beneficial for us all, not just Buddhists!

 

Accessing a state of mindfulness can be a challenge to most people, with so many distractions and annoyances hanging around us every day. Through the use of a digital camera it is a state of awareness that can be slipped into easily and effortlessly by anyone!

 

​Studies have shown the beneficial qualities gained through mindfulness as achieved when using a camera. A heightened connection to your surroundings and forgetting the day-to-day things that normally bog us down are common experiences for people when using a camera with purpose.
