8 Current Trends in Photography and Why They May Be Occurring Now

Here are 8 interesting current trends in photography and why they may be occurring now:

dynamic women, original, quirky, surprising, not just gorgeous models posing
What I think: We are coming into a greater emphasis on feminine consciousness, the divine feminine, the right brain, the need for women leaders who have more open intuition. And, we’re getting away from men’s idea of what the perfect, “sexy” woman must be like.

letterbox look: wide narrow formats like the new tvs
What I think: we’re widening our horizons, moving beyond the little box, thinking more globally, though still focusing in the horizontal, physical world.

all kinds of people; humankind’s giant mixing bowl, kids and seniors, all races, cool hipsters in traditional settings, being real not different
What I think: We’re becoming aware of collective consciousness and how interconnected we all are; learning to be less judgmental and separate.

monochromatic color, high contrast, black and white or light duotones, brings a feel for nostalgia and the richness of the old “film” look
What I think: We want to simplify and be more centered, pay closer attention to real, core things.

our own point of view; not just selfies but cameras on surfboards, helmets, up close, unexpected perspectives
What I think: We’re starting to legitimize our own experience and way of seeing the world, and to appreciate other people’s ways of seeing. We are using our attention more consciously to notice what we’re noticing.

sensory immersion with pixels that elicit all sorts of sense experiences; vivid macro images that heighten awareness, create a sensory wonderland
What I think: We’re learning to be more centered in our body, to feel into things, to get out of the left brain and appreciate pure experience.

super still life; inanimate objects cause us to pause, we explore the artistry of still life in the moment; interesting angles and arrangements, big dynamic images
What I think: We’re over-stimulated and need to slow down. We’re learning to be more mindful, to engage with the moment, to penetrate into what we’re noticing and focus on beauty.

complex photos with type overlays in boxes and layers
What I think: We’re multi-tasking to keep up with the acceleration, challenging our brains to work with both left and right hemispheres simultaneously, make intuitive connections, integrate faster.

Co-Creators Convergence Teleconference Call - Dec 4th

Anyone is invited to be in on the call I'm doing with Nina Patrick of the Co-Creators Convergence group, Thursday Dec 4. 

CoCreators Convergence Teleconference Call with Penney PeirceHosted by Nina Patrick with Noel & Bob Warner

Dial: 559-726-1300; PIN: 158352#Time: 5:30 PM PT; 8:30 PM ET

What is the perception of the future? And how do we get there now? Attention skills have never been more important!

Join Penney Peirce and Nina Patrick for a discussion of some of the following ideas from Penney’s newest book, Leap of Perception: The Transforming Power of Your Attention, which won 2014 Book of the Year from the COVR Visionary Awards.

We are in the midst of a global transformation of consciousness; the Information Age is speeding toward a “leap” into the Intuition Age. The resulting new reality will operate by different rules and we will know ourselves as a new kind of human being. We’ll live in a world that’s functioning entirely in the present moment, close to the speed of light.

In this time of shallow, fragmented attention, distraction, and “attention deficit,” it is only through new, conscious “attention skills” that we will enter and live successfully in the Intuition Age. These skills include: direct knowing, undivided attention, flow attention, unified field attention, collective-self attention, and working purposefully with the imaginal realm to materialize new realities.

“To transform, you must make a profound shift in the way you know things. How you make your world real to yourself must undergo deep revision. You can’t just keep processing data the way we’re doing it now—with an almost desperate need for speed. You need a new methodology that lets you naturally and effortlessly jump into expanded perception.”

“As the world increases in vibration, processes become more instantaneous. Cause-and effect ceases to be the primary rule for materializing results. What you want to create happens effortlessly, miraculously, with no logical explanation, in a twinkling. Everything is faster and easier.”

“Think of Intuition Age attention as something that fills the present moment fully, encompassing the entirety of your sphere. It allows you to perceive any amount of time and space, any frequency or dimension, and any depth of understanding you need. Your attention matches the scope of your sphere and brings you the understanding of a complex, holistic pattern of information all at once via direct knowing.”

“These days, with the world’s acceleration, expanded abilities are likely to develop without trauma, just by keeping your vibration at the level of your home frequency, working to become more transparent, and settling into the realization that you are much more than you’ve ever thought. You’ll find, too, that as one ability opens, it’s tied closely to other abilities, and several may occur in rapid sequence.”

“Attention is valuable because it’s not just an act of focusing your mind on a single point, it is the bringing of your very essence, your soul—the most valuable thing you have—fully into the moment, to perceive with clarity. When used properly, attention is life promoting and soul revealing, and it leads to conscious evolution.”
