Part of my favorite times in class is when I’m able to go out with the kids and shoot photos with them. They show me a photo they just took, and I tell them “chevere,” which means cool. I love it, because I’m able to point out things to the kids, or sometimes they just stand behind me and shoot whatever I shoot. It’s ok if they copy what I’m shooting, because then they can learn about what I like and how they can get a good grade…. just kidding. But it does teach them to see differently when they see me shooting from different points of views, like lying on the ground, or crouching down, or climbing up something to get the shot I want. Another part I like about the classes is that they love taking pictures of me (just me in general). So when I happened to high five Makiver for a great shot he just took, sometimes they catch those moments, and I am able to put their actual photographs towards future purposes like raising money for more equipment and their future classes. This perfect moment of a high five was captured by Miguel Angel.
