I have always been very interested in photography, but I never have had the time to look into it. When I took this class, and read that I needed to work on a personal project, I immediately thought about doing something with photography. First, I was just thinking to go out on my free time (I don’t have a lot of free time, because I work full time and study part time) and take pictures. I wanted to do it like learning by doing and see what happened. But then, one day my fiancé told me that the Melrose Center at the Orlando Public Library in Downtown was offering free classes in Photography. First, I thought that I couldn’t make it; but then, I researched and saw that they were offering classes in the morning and evening. So, I decided to attend some classes. I am not going to lie, I didn’t expect much from these classes; but I was wrong. My experience was great. The classes usually took an hour and instructors were/are really very knowledgeable in the field. As you can see on my journal, I took some classes in Photo Equipment Training: 1) Camera and Lens; 2) Lightening and Backdrops, and also 3) in Understanding Exposure and 4) Photo Composition. The first three classes were more about how to use a camera and understand the different functions of a camera. And the fourth was more about the artistic side of photography.

At that point, the instructor explained that everyone was interpreting the same subject from a different perspective and that psychology has a lot to do with photography. He didn’t go further about the topic; that was it. But it was enough for me to know that I wanted to learn

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
