The library is a place that does not feed your fantasy by only supplying you books, but it also provides an atmosphere where you can 'beautify' your talents. Do you know what it's called when you capture and highlight the vivid and colourful details hidden within the moments of life? If you guessed PHOTOGRAPHY, you are right! Photography is the art that connects our soul and mind, takes us beneath the surface of ordinary, and helps us document and savour our lives in more depth.
Photographer Roberto Riveros, will take us on a journey into the photographic world. He will begin with an introduction about the various types of photographs, techniques and equipment used in photography. This "studio-type" photo session is where he will teach participants how to take masterful pictures. Later, he will subjectively demonstrate photography and sketch its artistic aspects. Lastly, he will close with a question-answer session, as well as giving feedback and comments on the works of participants.
Roberto Riveros is a professional photographer with five years of experience. He believes that even with the new digital photography revolution, a photographer needs to have the desire and seek out for deeper knowledge and skills. "I hope to impart some of the excitement that I have towards photography, and it is always my pleasure to teach this skill to others,” says Riveros.
Participants are encouraged to bring their portfolio/sample if they are interested in some private comment/criticism about their work.
Photographs can be submitted into the popular Young Voices Teen Magazine, the deadline is Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
