We often take our daily stressors into the field when photographing wildlife. But unfortunately, these distractions can interfere with our ability to focus and dull our senses. We’ll focus on learning simple mindful techniques to help you become more in tune with animal behavior and the surrounding landscape. When we slow down and connect with nature, the better we observe, experience, and sense our surroundings.
You will learn how to explore your surroundings using visual exercises, different ways to blend into the landscape, and how to expand your awareness while photographing our wild neighbors. Learning these helpful tools will unlock your visual creativity, whether you are a professional traveling out in the field or an amateur just beginning your photographic journey. For photographers of any skill level using any type of camera who enjoy nature.
