Contemplative / Zen / Mindful Photography

It goes by many names but is in essence the same thing – mindful / zen / contemplative photography is a particular style of photography that aligns the photographers eye, mind and heart, to take pictures that are considered, careful and simplistic.  Often they will see beyond the obvious shot and take a shot that would be overlooked by most.    

Because the artist is using their heart to chose the photograph (some say the photograph chooses them…) the pictures have a deep emotional quality that is seldom seen in more commercial photography.
