‘Keep The Focus’ – Meditation Techniques for Street Photographers – Free eBook

Share

Many of us either try or do use meditation in our daily routines to aid our well being. Bringing brain and body together, in harmony, can help us deal with many things that we face each day. I need to practice it more, I know that many in our mobile photography community are huge advocates of it, not least our dear friend Carolyn Hall Young, who I know has practised it since she was 16 years old and it has helped her cope with so much. So, with that in mind, I was very interested to learn of this new free eBook ‘Keep the Focus’, which is a practical guide to help improve your street photography with three meditation techniques.

This project was initiated by German Street Photographer Thomas Ludwig and he has been practising meditation since 1999 and has been studying Buddhism since 2010 at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg, Germany under patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. An array of outstanding street photographers have contributed to this project and include Mike Boening, Valerie Jardin, Eric Kim, Marco Larousse, Thomas Leuthard, Rinzi Roco Ruiz, Spyros Papaspyropoulos and Forrest Walker.

This free ebook is available in English and German.

Grand Flickr Group Showcase of 2014 – TheAppWhisperer – Mobile Photography

Share

We have just completed this epic showcase of The Best Mobile Photography and Art images of 2014. All of these images were in our favourites section of our Mobile Photography & Imagery Flickr Group. We have painstakingly worked our way through over 8,000 favourited images, from an original of over 115,000. No mean feat but by viewing this showcase you are assured of viewing the immense talent within the mobile photography and mobile art community. It is incredibly impressive.

Please do note that we have not been able to include everyones favourited images, there’s just too many, we have had to be very selective to condense it. Please be assured that if any of your images are in the Mobile Photography & Imagery favourited section, they’re there for one reason and one reason only, because they’re extremely good.

We really hope you enjoy this showcase, it has been great to compile and see how each artists’ images and ideas have changed through the months of 2014. These images represent every month of 2014, it really is an incredible showcase.
