For the past 3 weeks I have been participating in Photo Meditations with Susannah Conway. This course is by far one of the most complete photo courses I have taken. It is not a technical course, but more a way to teach you to look with your eyes and your soul. I love teachers that do this. It seems more real to me than the technical aspects of photography and I believe this is a great place to start to learn about what you see around you.
These are images from week one of the course. I went on a photo walk in a neighborhood that I know but often don’t take time to really see what beauty exists there. The lesson for me was about slowing down, taking in my surroundings and finding peace.
As an artist, I believe this is a really important part of the creative process. We are all going at such a fast speed and want everything so quickly that actually stopping can be a difficult task for us. I encourage you to try it and see how it changes your perspective. I know it has changed mine.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
