Photography as Meditation: Tap Into the Source of Your Creativity Paperback

Photography as Meditation: Tap Into the Source of Your Creativity Paperback

Photography as Meditation

For many people, photography serves as a form of meditation; a way to separate themselves from their stressful lives. In this book, Torsten Andreas Hoffmann explores an approach to artistic photography based on Japanese Zen-Philosophy. Meditation and photography have much in common: both are based in the present moment, both require complete focus, and both are most successful when the mind is free from distracting thoughts. Hoffman shows how meditation can lead to the source of inspiration.

Hoffman's impressive images of landscapes, cities, people, and nature, as well as his smart image analysis and suggestions about the artistic process, will help you understand this approach to photography without abandoning the principles of design necessary to achieve great images. Photographing busy scenes, especially, requires an inner calm that enables you to have intuition for the right moment and compose a well-balanced image amidst the chaos.

The goal of this book is to develop your photographic expression. It provides enrichment for photographers who believe that only technical mastery produces great images and shows how important it is to engage with your own awareness to act creatively.

Photography Equipment Sale

Photography Equipment Sale

Past CPPA and PVPA member is closing the studio and selling all equipment. Sale on Sat.,  Nov. 8, 2014 at 177 Hopkins Place, Longmeadow, Ma. from 9:00am to 2:00pm. (

Studio lighting equipment includes: 5 foot x 6 foot light box powered by Speedotron; Lumedyne and  Quantum QFlash; Novatron 420 VR with four heads;  Smith Victors; and  Vivitars.

Large selection of umbrellas; stands; tripods; camera brackets; paper, cloth, canvas backdrops; reflectors; meters; portable backdrop stand; frames; book collection; and many smaller items. 

Camera equipment (all film):
 RB 67 has the following lenses: 65mm: 180mm; 90mm; 2X tele converter.
1) three 120 film backs
2) a Polaroid back
3) two viewing systems and a sport attachment system
4) seven –two sided plate film containers; misc. attachments.
Two Pentax 645 bodies with:
1) two 120 backs and two 220 backs;
2) lenses are 45mm, 135mm, 200mm, and 80-160 mm zoom.

There is a refrigerator full of 120 film, both color and black and white which will be given to purchasers of the medium format cameras.

Several Minolta bodies with a large assortment of lenses.

The darkroom is available for free and has the following:
1) sink is 30” wide by 8 foot long and includes drying racks for prints and the backdrop includes a complete water system including a water filter; and connects to the water lines using flexible hoses: the size permits the processing of 16x20 prints;
2) the print washer is 20” high by 26 “ wide and will wash 10 prints at a time and has a flexible hose from the sink backdrop for its water supply and a drain hose to the sink:

8) abundance of trays (up to 16”x20”), timers, etc.

 Obviously the space for the darkroom must be large enough to fit the sink into it. At this point the darkroom must go as a complete unit. I realize that it will be quite a job to move the darkroom, especially the sink which will need to be partially dismantled and re-assembled. There is a refrigerator full of black and white print paper which comes with the darkroom.

Predicting Dramatic Sunsets

Predicting Dramatic Sunsets

"I am sure you wish there was some magic formula that could tell you exactly the night for photographing a beautiful sunset? It’s not that easy, but hopefully we can discover some ways to increase your odds."

"A website such as will give you a detailed hourly report for key factors: cloud cover, air quality, humidity, and wind speed."

look for:
  • Mid to high level clouds
  • 30 to 70 percent cloud coverage
  • Clean air
  • Lower humidity
  • Calm winds

"sometimes the afterglow of the sunset, which can occur 15 to 20 minutes after the sun goes behind the horizon, can be much more spectacular than the actual sunset."

Photographic Competitions

A follow up to yesterday's post../

Photographic Competitions 

by Alain Briot

"There is a relationship between photographic critiques and photographic competitions, one that fosters interesting and worthwhile remarks.  There is also a relationship between vision and competition.  Just like a print review is a way to find out where you are at in regards to developing your vision, a print competition is a way to gage how far along you are in regards to expressing your vision and making it visible to others."

"Many remarks I made in my previous essay about critiquing photographs apply to photographic competitions.  These include the difference between facts and opinions, the importance of lighting, critiquing images on screen and in print and many more. Because of that I will not repeat any of these comments here preferring to refer you to How to Critique Photographs Constructively."

"What is a photographic competition?"

"A photographic competition is an event in which photographs are entered in order to be evaluated and given a score by judges.  After scoring is completed, entrants are ranked according to their score, with the highest score being first, the lowest score being last and all the other scores placed somewhere between these two extremes.  "

"Photographic competitions fall under the heading of art competitions.  Art competitions are organized for all art mediums, not just photography."

"The goal of these competitions is to find out which entries are the best.  While this intent is commendable the outcome is often less so because of the inevitable shortcomings that befall art competitions.  One of the goals of this essay is to point out what those shortcomings are."

About Alain Briot

I create fine art photographs, teach workshops and offer DVD tutorials on composition, image conversion, optimization, printing and marketing.  I am the author of Mastering Landscape PhotographyMastering Photographic Composition, Creativity and Personal Style, Marketing Fine Art Photography and How Photographs are sold.  All 4 books are available in eBook format on my website at this link

How to Critique Photographs Constructively

An interesting article on Image Reviews...

How to Critique Photographs Constructively

by Alain Briot

"Critiquing is not criticizing"

"Personally, I see a difference between critiquing and criticizing a photograph, or any work of art for that matter. For me critiquing means looking at the work for the purpose of finding out the strong and weak points of the work.  On the other hand criticizing means taking a critical look at the work for the purpose of expressing a personal opinion.  While there is a gray area between the two, I view the former as constructive and the later as destructive."

"Critique technical and artistic aspects separately"

"Technical aspects include focus, sharpness, exposure, processing, optimizing, cropping, collaging, HDR, printing and other technical aspects."

"Artistic aspects includes composition, light quality, color palette, facture, presence or absence of a recognizable personal style across a collection of images, creativity, motivation and other artistic aspects."

"Be factual, not opinionated"

"The reviewer’s behavior is just as important as the reviewers’ knowledge.  As the old adage says, no one cares about how much you know until they know how much you care."

"Make your critique factual, not opinionated. An example of a fact-based critique is: ‘this print is blurry because the camera was used handheld and the shutter speed was too slow.’  Sharpness is a verifiable fact and if the photographer wanted to create a sharp image there is something wrong with the resulting photograph. "

"An example of an opinion-based critique is: ‘I don’t like blue so I suggest you change the color of the image to a warm tone.’  Color choice is matter of personal taste and if the photographer chose that color intentionally there is nothing wrong with this decision."

"Keep your opinions about art to yourself"

:You don’t have to like a specific photograph in order to make meaningful comments about it.  You may not want to hang this photograph in your living room, however that doesn’t mean it is devoid of qualities.  Point to what works and what does not work in the photograph in regards to artistic and technical aspects and keep your personal taste in art private."

Snapshots vs Photographs - What's in Your Camera?

Snapshots vs Photographs - What's in Your Camera?

"The bland photographer’s thought process looks something like this:

See pretty thing
Turn on camera
P Mode
Point Lens
Click (x10)
Upload 800 pictures to computer
Wonder why 795 of those pictures were taken
Photoshop one image for an hour and maybe extract some valuable pixels from the mix
Upload 400 bland snapshots to facebook the next day at lunch

But it doesn’t have to be that way - all it takes is careful consideration. Here are a few steps anyone can take to change their snapshots into photographs. "

    40 Beautiful Examples of Bokeh Photography

    40 Beautiful Examples of Bokeh Photography

    "Bokeh. Basically it is referring to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced from a shot with shallow depth of field. Determining factors of bokeh are things like lens aberrations and shape of lens aperture. Bokeh is a very subjective thing. Its hard to say what is “good” bokeh and what is “bad”. In my opinion anything that is less distracting and adds something to the image would be considered good and anything distracting or confusing to the image would be considered bad. Based on that I have gathered some examples of what I think is beautiful bokeh photography."

    Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths ebook

    Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths ebook

    Cover for Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths, an eBook from The Art of Landscape Photography series.

    Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths was written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. It’s focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation. This is my first eBook, written from my perspective and experiences, and I’m thrilled to present it.

    By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this guide shows you the steps necessary to capturing beautiful bokeh.

    Bokeh: Creating with Shallow Depths is an eBook written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. It’s focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation.
    By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this extensive guide can show you how.


    With this 120+ page eBook, I wanted to present a comprehensive guide in a refined, easy-to-follow manner. I discuss the definition of bokeh, the optimal conditions and settings for bokeh creation, and also how to apply shallow depths creatively to landscape photography.
    Page previews for Bokeh: an eBook on using shallow depths in landscape photography
    Bokeh: A comprehensive eBook guide to using shallow depths in landscape photography.


        • Defining bokeh – the basics.
        • Distances and bokeh – how the space in between the elements of your photo affects your depth of field.
        • Light – How direct and overcast light can change the effect of bokeh.
        • Focal lengths – both long and short, and how to use them to manipulate bokeh.
        • Composition – How I approach a landscape scene, with workflow explanations from the planning stage to the execution.
        • Proper focus for bokeh – advice on how to use your tripod, and a step-by-step guide to getting the perfect focus for bokeh.
    To help illustrate the instructions given in this comprehensive guide, I have also included detailed explanations to 23 of my most popular bokeh images, with each photograph paired with a wealth of information of how I approached each scene. I discuss many aspects of my creative process and have grouped my images by similar key learning points – a common trait that they exhibit – allowing me to highlight certain factors that led to their development. Some examples include how I find inspiration, my long exposure workflow, and the importance of applying photography principles in your composition (such as perspective and symmetry).
    Page excerpts from the eBook Bokeh: using shallow depths in landscape photography
    Also discussed is the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how to compensate for exposure, and how to judge a scene before deciding what methods to apply: for example, how and when to decide if a scene needs to be stitched or auto-bracketed.

    3 Tips to Help Keep Your Photography Passion Alive

    3 Tips to Help Keep Your Photography Passion Alive

    "Photography is like any other pursuit in life, in that it requires a great deal of time and practice. Unless you make a living as a professional photographer, you might find that you simply don’t have enough hours in the day to devote to taking pictures. With work, family, school, and plenty of other obligations in our lives, it’s easy to let photography take a back seat to everything else. So, unfortunately we often find our expensive cameras gathering dust on the shelf, and our vibrant photo libraries growing ever more stagnant as the months and years pass. How in the world is it possible for hobbyist or enthusiast photographers, much less beginners who are just entering this brave new world for the first time, to find chances to learn, stretch, and grow, or just do what they enjoy doing? Thankfully there is hope, and I’d like to share a few tips that have worked for me."
