Before this week, photography was not interesting or appealing to me at all. That all changed when John Williams came to the Greene Institute and taught us how to handle a camera and take professional photos. He taught us about ISO, shutter speed and f-stop. He showed us his own photos, which were really interesting. I was especially interested in the ones about baseball because I love the game.
Williams really opened my eyes about photo journalism and has completely changed my mind about photography. When he sent us out for practice, I was partnered with Matt and Yash, who I feel have been friends for a long time, even though we have just met.
Learning about photography from Williams was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Maybe if I become a journalist, photography can be one of my main interests.
