Finding Joy and Beauty in the "Everyday"
"In a world where the 2 billionth photograph has been uploaded to Flickr, which looks like an Eggleston picture! How do you deal with making photographs with the tens of thousands of photographs being uploaded to Facebook every second, how do you manage that? How do you contribute to that? What’s the point?" -Alec Soth, Photography, 2009
Join us for a 2-hour meditative photography workshop. We will talk about ways to approach "seeing" that help alleviate this feeling of being inundated, and instead create a sense of connection and joy through the lens of the camera and the heart.
Sunday - October 23, 2016 - 9 am to 11 am
Location will be in the Chattanooga area with some light walking/hiking involved.
Cost is $45 per person. Student discount is $30.

"I believe that we can live our lives joyfully connected to our Soul, our family, friends and co-workers. I practice these meditation techniques throughout my day to facilitate my viewing the world through the eyes of my heart. I am looking forward to using them to connect with and share the beauty, joy and abundance of nature through our emerging photographic skills."
