Contemplative Photography invites us to slow down, to see and experience the world in a deeper way. It is a meditative art form that involves using our eyes as a portal to our heart and soul. As we increase our ability to “see” we gaze deeply and experience the world as richer, brighter and full of mystery. This mystery continuously invites us to notice God’s presence in the world. Join Triple M Tours, Delores Montpetit and Ken Skuba this fall for a photography tour that will help you see the world in a whole new light. Come, take the next step in your photographic journey, whether you are a beginner or an intermediate photographer, Delores will teach you to see light and shadow. We will explore colour, pattern, texture, subtleties, shapes and leading lines. Learn what makes a strong composition, capture unique photographs of famous and not so famous sights, and discover new towns, cities and countryside’s. We will laugh together, marvel at the beauty before us, probably get rained on, eat French pastries and gelato, taste new wines and explore hidden spots. We will greet the light early in the morning, rest in the afternoons when need be, and chase light again in the late afternoons and early evenings. We welcome photographers with smart phones, professional 35mm cameras and anything in between. This tour is limited to 16 students & 20 guests total. Register now to save your seat.
