I thought I'd talk a little about relaxation and how it applies to photography. Feeling rushed, stressed or depressed affects everything about you including your work. You'd be surprised how different your shots can be when you are feeling stressed in any way. There are many ways you can try to relax/destress, but it takes time to find one that works for you.
Photographers tend to have a smart phone in their pocket, so why not have use it to try and relax or meditate? A new app by the name of Pause uses one-of-a-kind techniques to activate your relaxation response. It can help your mind feel a bit more relaxed while clearing away the hundreds of thoughts scrambling around in your head.
The app has been tested with EEG and has actually proven to relieve stress. This doesn't mean it's guaranteed to work with everyone, but it's worth a try. Every time you go out shooting, try sitting down and using this app. The more relaxed you feel, the more you will enjoy your time shooting.
The app can be downloaded from the App Store HERE for $1.99. For more information about this app, check out their video below...
