Practices Makes Perfect (in my case...better)

So, I took a workshop this Saturday with Diego Huerta
I got sick on Sunday and finally got better today.
I took some time off my awfully agenda and decided to practice trying to be perfect. I know that I may not shoot the best photos however, I know that I'm improving. In fact, I always say "I'm not a photographer" although I like to be behind the lens...specifically behind the production.

I practiced today with my family:
Frida, Maki and Julieta.
Frida is the mother of Maki and Julieta. Wife and loved one of Rocco.
Maki and Julieta are the daughters.

Photographs were taken by me on August 19, 2010.

My first workshop as photography student.

Since I bought my first Leica X-1 I have been meaning to really use it.
But, I had to learn what is F, speed and ISO all in 2 hours. I had the best teacher.
On Saturday August 14, Diego Huerta gave a workshop where I had the opportunity to learn from the best.
Me and 4 other photographers walked around downtown Monterrey looking to shoot and experience what is to use natural and artificial light. This is what we came up with; these are the photographs I took and which I must say, I am pretty proud of.
Ain't no stopping me now!

I'm back - Chivas

After quite a few busy weeks, I'm back.
With an amazing experience and tiring days. Long 16 hour days of work are worth it.
On July 30, 2010, the OMNILIFE Stadium opened its doors to the public. The technology this stadium has, the architecture and the design is never-before-seen in Mexico. Diego and I went to Guadalajara, to take photos of the stadium and the opening day. It was beautiful to be able to be one of the first people to go inside and see how people came in and amazed sat down while the game started.
Here are some photos that I took with my new Leica camera.
By the way, I love my Leica.
