So, I have followed Kim Klassen for many years now. Signed up for most of her classes, but never participated fully. My goal is to participate more in her new class, be still 52, a year of finding stillness. Day one, Kim challenges us to take one minute of stillness a day and breathe... 6-10 slow deep breaths from our diaphragm while looking at something that we find beautiful or inspirational. Then shoot.
I admit to practicing these deep breathing techniques when I am stressed and they do work, I will be doing these daily now and hope to see a change in a feeling of peace and hopefully to improve my photography.
