Many years ago, I tried a yoga class at a gym solely to learn about meditation as a possible fix for insomnia. At the time I was involved in a rigorous physical rehabilitation program three times a week. It turned out the yoga complimented rehab and vice versa. I ended up staying in the yoga classe, developing the yoga and meditation practice, and eventually going through yoga teacher training. Along the way, there was much research online regarding yoga technique. The photos offered for educational purposes were simple and non-artistic, as one would expect. But then there were the other, more artistic photos that make the whole yoga thing look interesting. So I decided to try and develop skill in yoga photography only to find out how difficult it really is to shoot a pose in a way not previously done in a new environment. Fun, but not easy!!!
