About This Group

This group is a space for photographers who try to see things in their absolute essence. And for those who wish to learn or develop a ‘Miksang’ style of photography.

Miksang, at its most basic level, is concerned with uncovering the truth of pure perception. We see something vivid and penetrating, and in that moment we can express our perception without making anything up—nothing added, nothing missing. Totally honest about what we see—straight shooting.

Only straight from the camere and well focused photography will be accepted into the group.
