Madness at college!

Since I stared Photography in college, my life has been total madness, but for first time, wake up early in the morning, pay attention in class, and doing homework it hasn’t been painful, even when my life has been reduced to the basics (”collage, homework and bed”). But I’m doing what I love and every day I am back home with the biggest smile I ever had and felling like the Duracell bunny after a day in the Darkroom.

Back home a few people still don’t get the idea that photography is an actual career, that is not just a hobby, and they think that it is just a matter of pressing a botton and that’s it, the easiest thing you could do. I have to say, I never thought it was like that, but I though it was easy enough learn; until we saw “What is light, Pinhole Camera and Camera Oscura”, it’s not difficult actually, it gets messy for the first five minutes, after that everything make sense, even when some of my drawing in my notebook scare some of my classmates.

And that isn’t all, I have learned stuff I never thought I would, like taking a photo with a shoebox!?!? never thought that could be possible!! Now I’m in love with Pinhole Camera Work. Messy job to do, you need a lot of patience, but when it is done it is beautiful!

Now we are working with B&W film, and I’m falling in love with it. I realise that digital is sooooooo lazy and has us very spoiled. The idea of we seeing the photos immediately after taking is absolutely amazing, but I never saw it like that before, not until I shot my first B&W film and I wasn’t able to see it.  All the developing process is amazing, for those who doesn’t know, you have to do it in a totally black room, not even the red light in the darkroom, because the film is so delicate that the smallest amount of light can destroy it and  you have to trust  your memory and your hands to do it. It can be frustrating, yes of course, but I really enjoy it.

Now the next step for us is making the positives, we haven’t done it yet, but will see how it goes!! ;)
