This interactive talk will introduce you to Mindful photography, a creative low tech, accessible and fun way to gain a fresh perspective on the world around you, improve your well being and your photography skills at the same time. Ruth’s approach encourages people to slow down and create photographs in a conscious, non-judgmental way, taking notice and using the eye and the camera to anchor oneself in the present moment. Ruth will share photographs that tell her story and her work and will offer simple tips and exercises on how to mindfully see the world with fresh eyes.

In the search of the “Je ne sais quoi!” There is something in every good image that makes it stand out. Sometimes we know what it is and sometimes we don’t and just call it the “Je ne sais quoi” ! Through a presentation of 100 images I will be talking about what it is the “the something special” in these images that has made them successful. For more on this talk please follow this link.
