Spirituality in Photography: taking pictures with deeper vision
Philip Richter | Darton, Longman & Todd (2017)
On first impressions, this book does not feel very welcoming in spite of the stunning sunset on the cover. However, once you delve into the contents it gives you resources and techniques to develop both your photography and spirituality.
We are encouraged to slow down to savour and see with fresh eyes. The chapters each deal with a different aspect/type of photography (for example, framing, sunsets or mist and fog), giving hints and tips for the best way to approach each type of photography. They go on to illustrate how the theme can relate to our spiritual lives. There are sections with instructions on setting up a camera, tablet or smart phone to achieve the desired results. Technical language is kept to a minimum, so the book is accessible to the beginner. Readers are set a photographic and spiritual challenge with space to make notes on what they have discovered about themselves and their photography; they can also insert a favourite photograph resulting from the task.
