Hi All I am happy you clicked your newsletter and your here,
This morning at 05.00 AM the time stone town awake on my first coffee surfing on my mac my awakening eye opened full by the very nice article written here by eric kim” zen and the art of street photography” Well Kim is a good photographer and he write very interesting issue about photography more street photography. And this morning he put his attention on ZEN what’s interesting for me. For all who did a photowalk with us know we put a lot energy the awareness of zen in photography the inner silence not the stressed over concentration I met with very famous photographers no name dropping who visited our isle. But glide in balance walking the streets being aware of everything and even the thing’s going to come seeing how the picture will develop and be ready for it. As seen in the pictures in kim’s article but also in the work of Sebastião Salgado and Henry Cartier-Bresson but their are many more. The picture in this writing I make on golden hour here in stone town a girl comb her hair but is also very interested in the camera. D300 1/320 F 2.8 30mm ISO 200. I think we can learn from the way the great photographers quote there work .
“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter. Ansel Adams
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. – Ansel Adams
For me, I find the inner silence to come close to the subject when God’s is ready to have somebody to click my shutter, trough the no thinking, by meditation. My walking though streets feels as KINHIN zen walking meditation it’s for me the only way to photograph, when home drinking my tea after hours walk I realize often I made only one or two picture’s notwithstanding I feel great.
