Ever since I wrote a post about how photography and yoga are similar, I’ve been thinking about writing more in this topic for a while. True to form, my short term memory kicked in and obviously forgot it for a while. Also true to form, my memory comes at the weirdest times and luckily I only shouted when I was by myself when I
exclaimed said that I should really write another post for this topic.
I’ve covered some of the mental/spiritual side of photography and yoga, and I was thinking if there are any commonalities between asanas and photography. Then I thought of an article I read ages ago about ‘funny’ photographer poses. Now I have ventured far and wide in the past to get a good photo, and quite possibly squatted or looked weird when trying to capture a scene. I can safely say though, that I never stood/squatted/sat taking a photo that resembled anything like yoga poses graced in the likes of Yoga Journal.
Well go ahead, decide for yourself if the following poses some photographers get into look like asanas you and I might be practicing.
