My passion is photography.
I discovered my passion for photography around the age of 13. I just enjoyed taking pictures of so many things and I thought they looked great. I started to share them and it was nice to show people my photos. I have been wanting to get a camera but I have been using the camera for my phone. It is very calming for me to take a pictures of things and I enjoy taking pictures of things and nature and anything that I find interesting. I discovered my passion for photography by looking at different pictures in social media that looked very much like paintings and I enjoyed looking at them very much. I would like to travel to different places in the world and take pictures of different places.
Nayeli has always been interested in photography since I first started teaching her. She would always be excited when there were opportunities to draw or take pictures, telling me that it was a way for her to express her emotions without many words.
I am so excited for Nayeli to have the opportunity to to take her passion to the next level by learning the skills and fundamentals of photography.
I really appreciate your kindness towards me. I do not think that I could have even gone to Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I have learned so much in my photography class. I feel like I have grown so much in my photography skills. I started off having problems with how to focus the camera on the exact spot that I wanted. But throughout the classes I have learned that the camera does not control itself I control the camera. So, I started playing around with the different buttons that there was on the camera and I learned how to keep the camera focused on what I wanted. Something else that I have learned is that not everyone is going to understand why I took a certain picture so I have to show it in the picture in some way. It was difficult trying to figure out things that I wanted to take a picture of but eventually I did find many things when I was just letting my mind go on its own. Once again I feel very grateful for the donations that I have gotten for the Academy of Arts in San Francisco it really meant a lot to me because I got to go and meet new people from different parts of the world and I got to get out of my comfort zone by making new friends that have the same interest as I do. I have also gotten out of my comfort zone by exploring different lighting in my pictures I have never done something like that and I feel like that opened up my mind more and i feel like when a photographer takes a picture with different types of color bouncing off of buildings or walls it makes me think what they were trying to do and why they chose those colors and what the colors have to do with what the model is feeling. I honestly can not say this enough, thank you so much for giving me this opportunity.
