Spirituality in Photography
March 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0
Millions of photos are taken everyday 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 setting 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 camera phone to a high end camera. We will be honing up our photographic skills a little, but the accent will not be on producing technically perfect images. The idea is to create some images that help you express yourself spiritually and that might potentially be a spiritual resource for others too. We will aim to open our eyes, through the camera, to God’s presence in ordinary as well as special places.
The day will be led by Philip Richter, a retired Methodist minister, keen photographer and writer on photography and spirituality. Philip’s latest book was published in 2017: Spirituality in Photography: taking pictures with deeper vision(Darton Longman & Todd).
Bring your own picnic lunch. Tea, coffee & soft drinks provided.
Please book in advance.
