In this article, A. B. Watson describes how Zen philosophies influence his photographic process. He reminds us that “Zen can be a state of mind. Stillness, simplicity, looking inwards, beginners mind and finding the beauty in all things” and goes on to discuss how this state of mind can be applied to photography.
He describes a type of walking meditation where he explores the world and photographs instinctively rather than getting wrapped up in the technical thought behind the photographs.
To be a Zen Photographer “All you need is your camera and yourself, being present in the moment, that is where creativity shines, that is true Zen.”
