In my experience with both photography and yoga, I find something different. When taking photographs of people, I get the best shots when they are not posing for me but instead, being themselves - laughing and talking and being. Just like in yoga class. I help my students to find "their pose" - a comfortable and steady space of being. To breathe, to smile.
"A photographer gets people to pose for him. A yoga instructor gets people to pose for themselves." ~T. Guillemets
How wonderful it is to capture a person's true essence through a photograph or through a yoga pose. I am so grateful I am able to do both.
