Photography is beautiful. It allows us to capture things in our everyday lives such as sunsets, our family, friends and pets and our travel experiences.

Photography can also highlight the little things in life that we may not always pay attention to such as flowers blooming, woodland creatures in their habitat and the gathering of special moments.

Certain details can bring out a picture. I've always enjoyed capturing things that make me feel excited, peaceful and natural beauty throughout the world.

Those who are also interested in healing aspects may be interested in a different type of photography.

Rare healing photographs can be taken within the Hudson Valley. While this may be something that is offered in New York City, these types of photos aren't frequently offered within the Hudson Valley. When the opportunity rises to try this type of photography, it may be worth checking out. 

I haven't tried aura photography yet but I look forward to this new experience.

What Is Aura Photography?

Aura photography captures the aura of the person who's getting their picture taken. Cosmopolitan described aura photography as

"Aura photo is often accompanied by a reading that explains the colors visible in your portrait, the density or opacity of each color, and the placement of each “cloud” of color."

Cosmopolitan explained that a camera is hooked up to metal plates which the person being photographed would then place their hands on sensors. During this time, the camera takes pictures. They also explained that the 

"camera opens for a long double exposure, creating both a headshot and a visual, colorful auric capture layered on top."

Depending on locations, this experience may differ from others.

Where Can Residents Try Aura Photography In The Hudson Valley?

After doing research, I discovered that there were Hudson Valley businesses that used to offer this service and some that still do but haven't made it public to the community.

Recently, while I was at Crystal Connection to experience their salt cave, I saw a sign explaining aura photography. I had the experience to chat with the photographer who leads this process and learned more about this cool experience which made me even more excited to book an appointment.

Crystal Connection is located in Wurtsboro, NY. They are known for being

"One of the largest Crystal & Mineral destinations on the Northeast."
