I started Mi Camisa Blanca one month ago and it’s truly been an experience. I’ve dedicated my heart and mind to learning about everything that comes with being a blogger. Because it’s not only about writing; photos, for example, are essential in any good blog. So I decided to educate myself further because without the basic photography techniques and only an iPhone, I wasn’t going to be able to deliver what I expected of this project. I participated in an intensive seminar with Roberto Mata and I must say it was one of the most fulfilling experiences of this first month. Roberto is a renowned Venezuelan photographer and those who know him will understand the luxury of having him as a teacher. I must confess that the theoretical part with all the numbers related to measuring the time, the diaphragm and ISO were quite intimidating for me at first. I really hate numbers! Nevertheless, Roberto encouraged me and told me that I was going to understand everything before I knew it. I love that he has a perfect mix of sense of humor and seriousness, which I believe are key assets to make the learning experience really pleasant. For example, he created nicknames for all participants, mine was “Miss I can’t deal with numbers”, since I constantly went on about it. It’s those types of jokes, the ones that make you laugh at yourself, that truly make any learning experience an enjoyable one. I want to share with you four of the photos that I liked the most from the field assignment we were given. The task was to identify all the letters of the alphabet through different objects in Lincoln Road. I enjoyed this activity immensely, since it’s focus was to ignite everybody’s creativity. Now I’m ready to use my camera every day and take the photos you deserve to see whenever you read my posts. Of course, this is only the beginning; I want to keep learning because I don’t want to limit myself to the 50mm lens. The world is my oyster!
