I’ve been out of rhythm for awhile w/ serious photography, usually only taking snaps, flickr, etc. Though lately, I’ve re-engaged the medium, started shooting again, using the camera as a tool for observation, study, and awareness. Making conscious effort to slow down, pause & inhale the forms and counterforms.
I go through phases when lugging a camera around can feel like a total burden, buffering one from a genuine experience. Whereas other times, it’s has the opposite effect. Bringing one in closer contact with the now moment, framing presence. The photo experience becomes a means of establishing contact – with a tree, a person, a vibrational frequency, a feeling, or a certain lightness of being.
