  The Practice of Contemplative Photography
Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes
by Andy Karr and Michael Wood

Practice of Contemplative Photography


 
This book teaches us how to fully connect with the visual richness of our ordinary, daily experience. Photography is not just a mechanical process; it requires learning how to see. As you develop your ability to look and see, you will open, more and more, to the natural inspiration of your surroundings.

Filled with practical exercises, photographic assignments, and techniques for working with texture, light, and color, this book offers a system of training that draws on both Buddhist mindfulness practice and the insights of master photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Andy Karr is a writer, photpgrapher, and longtime Buddhist meditator and teacher. He is also the author of Contemplating Reality.

Michael Wood studied photography in art school and worked as a commercial photographer in Toronto, Canada. After discovering Buddhist meditation, he began to synthesize his meditation experience with a fresh way of looking and seeing in his photography. He now teaches contemplative photography workshops in North America and Europe.
