Do you find it easier to express yourself with images than with words? Do you enjoy taking photographs that speak to your way of being in the world? Do you wish that you could use your camera more effectively to express what you experience?
One does not have to be a professional photographer in order to benefit from photography as a contemplative practice. Photography can be a doorway to open up our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. It is doing the practice itself that helps to unravel the innate creativity of our minds and the subtle, often unnoticed beauty of the world. We can begin to explore our imagination and experiences with the camera from all angles and receive insights from what we see that will take shape first in our own minds and hearts, then move in and through our photographic work out into the world.
The photography circle meets Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the hall of St. Paul's Anglican Church. We follow a process which can assist you whether you consider yourself a beginner or more advanced in skill to develop a contemplative attitude towards your work and the images you create.
