- Any type of camera that allows for practicing partial and full manual mode. If you only have a smartphone camera, you can still complete many of the assignments, but I must warn you that you wouldn't be able to fully benefit from the course.
Firstly, you will learn the basic elements of Photography and be introduced to camera settings, lighting, composition, and the fundamentals of different types of Photography. After that, you will study awareness, compassion, gratitude and other notions that are the foundation for a mindful lifestyle. Later in the course, you will then combine both Photography and Mindfulness together, and finally complete a series of hands-on photo practice exercises.
After finishing this course, you will be more equipped both in theory and practice, taking your image-making to the next level.

A few important notes about meditation and how to navigate this course.
We all start somewhere. We all learn from practice. Always. Even seasoned pros don't always take stellar images, and can always learn and improve. A Photographer is, firstly, human.
There are common habits people have while Photographing. Choices, most times made in an unaware way, that make the image lack in uniqueness when compared to its full potential. If you don’t make the most of an image, it can be a casual snapshot, instead of an aware, intentional capture.
With the advent of smartphones and social media, Photography became a part of the daily life of many people. However, just like not every recipe is delicious or healthy, a lot of pictures we see and "like" are not fully explored in terms of image-making. That’s fine, depending on the goal. Filters, apps are fun. I use them! But if your intention is growing as a Photographer, then you should go deeper. Pay more attention. Develop the Photographer's eye and mind.
Of course, take this with a grain of salt. Or a spoonful. Many times, bending rules produce stunning images, but usually, these are done on purpose, by experienced professionals.
