The Mindful Eye

The Mindful Eye is a photography community: "We are here to help and inspire each other in the pursuit of our passions, happiness and the unlimited potential of our dreams as photographers and as human beings. We believe that the simple act of sharing your joy with your camera can change the world for the better." It developed from its previous incarnation as Radiant Vista into a fuller, richer site including useful teaching tools such as the Daily Critique, Photo of the Week, Digital Darkroom, Foundation Concepts, and much more. I visit the site daily for new content and recommend it to all my photography students as a positive support system as they develop their skills. posted by bwg (2 comments total) 21 users marked this as a favorite
I have thought about posting this ever since Craig took down his old Radiant Vista website. I learned about it when I took a workshop from him a few years ago; in addition to being an excellent photographer and teacher he is a genuinely nice guy. I have often recommended his Myth of Talent essay to others. Thanks for posting it.

From the Myth of Talent TedW linked to: "Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want." – Margaret Young Wow, that's insightful.
