Has anyone taken a course on miksang contemplative photography and how did you find it? Did it apply to all your images, i.e. stills and portrait photography. Can you provide some details on the learning process?

Yes, I have. It was interesting, the exercises are less about taking photos, and more about trying to see things in a fresh way. You could use it for any type of photography.

In my workshop we didn't use our cameras at all, we did a variety of exercises on using our eyes as a camera, and training ourselves to see things without trying to find the pretty picture, but to look at everything in an environment without bias. It is a little hard to describe, but if you have done meditation, it is quite similar.

Feel free to memail me if you have more questions.
