Goals of the safari

Awareness is characterized by contact, by sensing, by excitement and by gestalt formation. It is the spontaneous sensing of what arises in you of what you are doing, feeling, planning.

When a photographer makes a good-quality, 'aware contact' with a subject he/she is photographing and feels some excitement, that experience is a gestalt. Gestalt formation always accompanies awareness.

"Is this a digital or film course?"

It is a creativity course. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Do not worry about your equipment. "Point and shoot" cameras are suitable for this course.
