Spirituality in Photography 2
November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0
Millions of photos are taken every day across the world. Some are just snapshots. Others are more carefully crafted and can deepen our vision and sharpen our sense of what life is all about. In this workshop we will be exploring how our photography and our spirituality can inspire each other. The workshop will help us explore how photography can offer us unique perspectives on ourselves, our world and our faith – focusing on some particular aspects of photography and giving plenty of hands-on experience with your camera in the wonderful surroundings of Westminster.
You won’t need any prior experience or expertise – just some enthusiasm to explore how photography might deepen your spirituality (and vice versa!). Please bring a camera with you – anything from a smart phone to a high-end camera.
The programme will cover topics, such as:
- Letting photos tell our story
- Worshipping with photos
- ‘Selfies’ – curse or blessing?
We will be demonstrating an innovative way of appreciating, in small groups, the photos you take on the day.
The day will be led by Philip Richter, a recently-retired Methodist minister. He is a keen amateur photographer and writer. His most recent book is: Spirituality in Photography: taking pictures with deeper vision(Darton Longman & Todd, 2017).
This is a new workshop, different from the one Philip led in March – new and returning participants most welcome!
Bring your own picnic lunch. Tea, coffee & soft drinks provided.
Please book in advance by calling the Church Office on 020 7654 3809
