Through the course I learned many concepts and key terms but one of the ideas that will stick with me as I pursue this passion is that the only way you can become a better photographer is by making tons of mistakes and practicing taking pictures constantly. Also HARD WORK always pays off, the more dedication, passion and value you add to your pictures the more the audience will like it. Photography is an art, you compose your picture and control every aspect of it and the message you want to deliver. Pictures are very valuable because one shot can say a lot of things. It is a great way of communication and expression.
When it was my turn to present I began by talked about my theme, which was summer in Lima. What I wanted to portray in my four sequential photos was what summer means and how different people enjoy it. However, I didn't want to show off Asia or any other beach were the high class peruvians go because I wanted my composition to be genuine so I went to Agua Dulce, a beach in la Costa Verde, were the lower/ rising medium class peruvians spend their summer weekends. These people aren't very wealthy but they still find ways to have fun over the summer. Once I was done explaining my theme I saw everyone's faces, all my classmates were so SURPRISED. My teacher and everyone began to comment and told me that the pictures were beautiful. Inside I felt a HUGE relief and at the same time I was so proud of myself for creating this. One of my classmates even offered money for one or all the pictures. It was my first PROFESSIONAL composition and I already had a client.
