Evidence of SimplicityTake time to listen to yourself. Become
familiar with the voice that speaks directly
from your heart.
- Exercise -In your daily journaling, ask yourself
these questions: "Why photography and
not painting or sculpture? What is it about
the medium itself that inspires you so?
Choose one image that you've made in the last
year that is your "icon of experience". The
one image - if all others were lost - that most
represents your voice as an artist.
Finally we have come to the last PhotoTao card! I think it would be helpful to bring back what I said when I posted the very first card way back on September 18, 2012. I was inspired by the collection of Tao cards created by Priya Hemenway but...
These cards are free for you to copy and pass on as you wish. They might offer interesting challenges and focus for discussion at your camera club. I've had the great pleasure of talking to various groups over the last year and a half about contemplative photography and I am available, in the New England area, to be a guest speaker should you want this. I will try, in time, to offer the whole set of PhotoTao cards as a easily printed PDF.
I hope you have enjoyed reading the weekly cards and that you have tried a few of the prompts. The important thing is to stay open to many different ways of photographing your world and, most of all, to enjoy the process.
