It is easy to take lots and lots of photos with today’s digital cameras. Years ago, you had to be more careful what you too, when you had to keep putting expensive rolls of filming your camera. Today 90% of people are happy in taking snap-shots. This predatory approach to photography even carries over into some of the language we use: photoshoots, image capture, taking a photo, snap-shots and so on.
But is it really being as a photographer?
Photography relates to being patient, slow photography, which takes the time to stop and look, to wind down and be truly present to see with the eyes of the heart to receive or make a picture rather than take it. The photo maker and photo taker concept already discussed in our blog.
This approach to photography is again to put away your camera at first and pick up a paper and pencil and start drawing what you see. You don’t need to be a good artist at all just being there.
This way you reconnect with your true-self.
“Gods walks slowly because he is love, otherwise he would have gone much faster.”
Love has speed. It is an inner speed. It is a different kind of speed from the technological sped to which we are accustomed.
Consciously slow down your life. Refuse to be rushed. Discover the single thing that matters.
