The Practice of Contemplative Photography: Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes from Shambhala and written by Andy Karr and Michael Wood teaches you how to fully connect with the visual richness of our ordinary, daily experience. Photography is not just a mechanical process; it requires learning how to see. As you develop your ability to look and see, you will open, more and more, to the natural inspiration of your surroundings.

Filled with practical exercises, photographic assignments, and techniques for working with texture, light, and color, this book offers a system of training that draws on both Buddhist mindfulness practice and the insights of master photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

About the Authors:
Michael Wood studied photography in art school and worked as a commercial photographer in Toronto, Canada. After discovering Buddhist meditation, he began to work on synthesizing his meditation experience with a fresh way of looking and seeing in his professional photography. He teaches workshops to photography clubs and meditation groups.

Andy Karr is a writer, photographer, longtime meditator, and Buddhist teacher. He trained intensively with two of the great founding teachers of Western Buddhism: Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, author of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, author of Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, and other classics.
