Environmental Photography

Photographs of nature helps create energy and optimism, helps patients redirect negative thoughts, and provide comfort for the soul. Acutely stressed patients who are exposed to “serene” photographs (primarily water or other tranquil nature scenes) have lower blood pressure than patients exposed to no art or bland posters. Viewing nature scenes promote positive feelings and help people feel less stressed when looking at nature. Photographs of a variety of landscapes helps lower stress levels especially how much greenery is in the picture. It helps to promote biophilia, implying affection for plants and other living things and creativity especially in young people who would learn about their environmental heritage.
