Curls

I attended another webinar on contemplative photography this week. I'm finding this approach to taking photos very similar to how I've taken them all along. Most of the photographers who speak though show examples from amazing trips they've taken. I would love to travel like that but it's not in the realm of possibility for me so I've been exploring ways to practice some of these lessons right in my own backyard. This week's webinar was about picking up small details in landscapes- and this is my take on picking up small details in the landscape of a flower that's past its prime.
Just so ethereal. Love the softness and tones.Fav. Was the webinar recorded?.if so where?

@joysabin Thank you Joy- I think you'll be able to view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URO86wN30sc&feature=youtu.be&utm_source=Nature+Photo+Guides+Newsletter&utm_campaign=7fd60a8c7a-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_12_20_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0b5cc011e7-7fd60a8c7a-356287426&mc_cid=7fd60a8c7a&mc_eid=09dda335ca

In case that doesn't work, the three photographers who led the webinar were Sarah Marino (Nature Photo Guides), Jennifer Renwick (Exploring Exposure), and Anna Morgan (Blue Tusk Images). Sarah and Jennifer have started a youtube channel Live, Laugh Landscape. They are also part of a group called the Slow Photography Movement. I think if you google any of those names, you should be able to find similar information.

Thank you so much for all your views, comments and favs- your support really means the world to me! Especially when I'm trying out new things and going deeper with my captures!

@golftragic see the info I typed out for Joy. It also called Mindful Photography and Seeing Deeply plus variations of the same. I really don't think it's anything "new"- there have been photographers approaching their subjects like this for some time now, but it seems to be catching on as an overall approach both in photography and in life so it's captured more attention than before. I call it "the art of seeing".

@ludwigsdiana Thank you Diana! That is high praise coming from someone whose photography I admire as well!

@pistache Trips are exciting but not always possible. There was a clever quote a while back and unfortunately I can't think of the photographer's name off the top of my head, but it went something like "If you can't find a picture within 40 steps out your back door what are you going to see in Maui?" I have to agree with that!

Thanks Ann, there's been a resurgence of interest in the whole concept of mindfulness here so I guess this is a logical extension in the creative realm.
